Weekly Photo Challenge: Close

I took this photo during one of my walks through Brompton Cemetery in London.  I’ll leave it up to the individual viewer to interpret close since it may have different interpretations for each person.

      Thanks Anne. I’m really enjoying all of the different interpretations on the blogs this week. One word means so many different things to people.

    It’s my habit to visit on graveyards. Your photo is wonderful. I started that “peculiar” hobby when we visited on Père-Lachaise’s cemetery in Paris for the first time. It is a “must place” when in Paris,

    Well, always trees do not give shelter on graveyards. My late father lies on this cemetery and look what happened when Downburst passed the cemetery.

    Happy Sunday!

    Nice one! i really must visit Brompton cemetery sometime – I have heard so much about it.

      It is so beautiful and there are lots of birds in there. I love walking there during the afternoons and listening to the wind through the trees and hearing the birds chirp.

    The tree is keeping them all close. Great photo!

  14. That would be so eerie at night. But it is quite beautiful during the day. I would love to have an old tree like this to sit under 🙂

    Nice shot. I can see many examples of “close.”

    • TBM says:

      Thanks. I thought it might have personal meanings for each viewer and I didn’t want to force my opinion on anyone. It’s nice to hear what others see and feel.

    This picture made me think of Ents – wonder what you’d call an Ent that protects cemeteries?
    Lynn 😀

    • TBM says:

      You should see all of the trees in the winter…they really do look like Ents. I love creating stories during my walks. And I’ll have to ponder a name for a protective Ent. Thanks Lynn.

Thanks for commenting, I would love to hear from you.
