calm before the storm

Taken at Mt. View Cemetery just before the rains came.  We are now into day three of what is predicted to be a week long storm.


  1. Uh huh - and last night, all hail broke loose à Chez la Vache.

  2. Thank you for your love and sincerity.
    I cannot take your words without my tears.

    We did not know the real nature of the object which we made.
    We have done irreparable thing.
    The monster of the uncontrollability. . .

    I am ashamed for world friends in our ignorance.
    I apologize to world friends as Japanese one.
    However, you do not need to forgive Japan which polluted the earth.
    Because this result is last arrival point of way which ourselves chose.

    The tsunami is the creation of the Nature.
    The monster is the creature of the Man.

    This tragedy is already too enough.
    The fire fighting workers who prepared for death...
    The citizens who avoid radioactivity, and wander...

    The monster is Absolutely unnecessary.
    Convenience. Luxury. Comfort. more, and more...
    Even if I was robbed of all of them, I am enough if there is the beautiful earth.
    I accept the misfortune with pleasure.

    I deeply thank for your warm heart and thoughts...

    From Japan, ruma

  3. Beautiful image. Very sugestivve.

  4. My brother got married in this cemetery!

  5. Married in the cemetery. Novel idea but probably more common than I'd get 20 chances to guess for.

    I did get my tattoo, in 1955, in downtown Oakland. Still got it. But it is more a black out of focus smear that, if you got good eyes, and look closely you can eventually make out two roses on a stem.

  6. A week-long storm? Nasty. Thanks for your nice comment about my half-head. It seems that I am one half-head ahead of you on that score.

  7. you should go back when it is raining and take another picture. a moody black and white feel.

  8. in answer to your comment, yes, i changed my name. i have reverted back to it now though as the person i was hiding from has found me. (i have a stalker unfortunately).

    so consequently, i have now had to remove my comments box as i am being harassed!
