And yet another photo friday is upon us. This week's theme is Baby. I had a big of an ethical quandry with posting this photo. The boots on top of the marker just get me, and though babies, by and large, represent the potential of the species the sad fact is that even in America babies die every day. And it always seems particularly tragic.
Ergo, my ethical dilemma. This baby died almost 50 years ago, so her parents are not all that old. Do they still live in town? Will they find this photo on the Web and be heartbroken because the grave marker for THEIR BABY was used in an online photo collection?
My photoshop skills are not refined enough to gracefully erase the name on the marker, but the photo speaks to me about life and how sometimes even the most precious lives are ended before the individual even has time to speak. Literally.
So here is my morbid entry for baby.
