Guardians of the past…

This morning I pointed my vehicle towards Minneapolis.  My goal was to photograph statues in a couple of cemeteries.  As I drove through the quiet and cold gates I was captured by the elegance and thoughtful detail each sculpture possessed.  I pondered for a moment what these statues meant.  For me the words that came to my mind were; “Guardians of the past”.  These chiseled creations born from the hands of master sculptors weather the seasons and represent memories of a loved one no longer alive.  Figures both strong in substance and gentle in represented demeanor,  guard memories of the past and names of the future.
