I have been re-reading Peter S. Beagle's A Fine and Private Place (which is beyond excellent). I found myself needing to seek out this beautiful old cemetery to take a self portrait inspired by the book.

I really am quite unable to express just how much this incredible work moves me, so I will simply leave you with this quote from from the sardonic talking raven:
"There are honest people in the world, but only because the devil considers their asking prices ridiculous.”

Many thanks to Geoff for finding the location for me and being my human tripod while I shot this! And also just for being all-around awesome :)

I have blank greeting cards and a 2013 calendar for sale, with 12 of my most popular images for sale at Red Bubble! Support an artist with your purchase :) Also, if there's an image you'd like to see on a card and it's not in my shop, let me know; I can probably add it for you!
