Alone for eternity

I have two photographs for this week’s Black & White Challenge: Abandoned or Alone, both taken at Waverley Cemetery, Sydney. The cemetery, which opened in 1877, sprawls across cliff tops beside the ocean.

Someone has propped this fallen cherub on the grass beside the grave on which it was placed decades ago.

Toppled from the grave she once adorned, this marble girl lies abandoned on the ground, sinking slowly into the earth.
