Always a memory

This is another shot from the Woodland cemetary in Stockholm. Many of the newer headstones had decorations and mementos added to them. Some of them might’ve been an original part of the headstone design, others were obviously added by relatives afterwards. Some were home-made, others were knick-knacks which I assume hold greater emotional value for whomever put them there. I was touched by the simple intensity some of these things presented and even though I felt uneasy about photographing such obviously personal mementos I snapped a shot of this one. The editing is fairly clichĂ© but I like it anyways. The inscription of the stone says “I love you” in Swedish.
