At La Recoleta Cemetery, Part II

I posted a photo from La Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires once before –and am working on a longer post culled from my manuscript research– but want to post this one now, fitting as it is for eerie, the theme for this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge. Cemeteries are a joy during and after a rain, no?

This doesn’t strike me as much eerie as it does ghostly, with the raindrop falling like a tear from the young woman’s cold, hard eye. For a few moments, I was expecting to hear a faint wail. That would have been eerie. 🙂

    I don’t know that it’s eerie, but it’s a wonderful photo. If the background music were just right, it could be eerie, though.

      Indeed. Nature is the finest artist we know. I only wish it had been a little bit lower when I snapped the photo. 🙂
