Tuesday Photo Challenge: Yard

I must admit that Frank’s prompt of ‘Yard’ for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge had me stumped for quite a while, until I remembered that when we visited Monet’s Garden at Giverny a few years ago we also took a little tour round the local church and its graveyard.

The obvious neglect is given added poignancy by the carved ‘Famille’ on the gravestone.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Decay

For Frank’s theme for this week of ‘decay’, here is an image of part of the heavily-weathered inscription on a gravestone to be found in the old burial ground opposite St Mary’s church in Beverley, Yorkshire.

Time and the elements have worn down the lettering into something almost abstract, although it is still possible to make out some of the wording.
