An interesting shot that tells an interesting story if I can just figure out what it is... A very thought provoking image.

This photo is filled with a story Chris. This lady looks like she's been here quite often and now just becomes part of the whole scene. I love this post... ~Mary~

Chris, it's a cryptical image to me. A relative old lady at the graveyard reading a newspaper, think it has nothing to do with a weeping widow the more she hasn't flowers in the basket at their bike, the more that the grave is not maintained, the more that sitting at a grave this way is, to me, less respecful, but I can be wrong. Regards, Cornelius

Interesting image, ironically she's not visiting but rather reading instead. Nice work on this.

a very touching photograph Chris! She is obviously spending time with someone who was very dear to her!

Not bad at all.
Seems like a good place to investigate for photographies.
Maybe some of the more gloomy kind?
I'd sure like to see more from this place.
Maybe an early morning with sparse sunlight and mists around the tombstones in a more frontal view?

I keep coming back to this for another look and wondering why she chose this spot - for the silence (I hope you did not click too loudly :) ) or to be close to someone. An interesting and thought provoking image.

Interesting. Thought provoking. What were YOU doing there? Was she aware that you were taking pictures? I just love this kind of pictures.. they can tell a million stories... each to it's own.. Thanks for sharing.

People will soon forget what you said or what you did, but they will always remember how you made them feel.

Whoa ... one word ... 'powerful'.

Great ... great, editorial shot in my mind.

And the composition is very good with some wonderful leading lines.

Nicely done Chris. I really like this one.

Hmmm - this lady probably stops here on her bike rides for a little rest. Since she's sitting on a step, and not on the grave, I don't think she's being disrespectful. It's a peaceful lovely area to have a sit down :)
I hope you take some photos of those old gravestones - the old stones are well made and tell many stories. Good composition, clearness and light. Thanks Chris, for an interesting image :^)

I need to catch up on things so can't comment too much. But I love all of your fine images :)

This is just my perspective of it, but cemeteries are very peaceful, and it's not very likely that you'll be disturbed there while reading. Also, since she's an elderly lady, maybe her husband passed away. I think that this could also be a possibility: she and her husband (if he is indeed deceased and buried in that cemetery) had a tradition of reading the newspaper together in the morning and maybe she does this on occasion to keep with tradition.
