Weekly Photo Challenge: Broken

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Broken.”

I love wandering through cemeteries. I’ve been to so many in all different countries – they all vary and still I find them all very peaceful. What breaks my heart though is when I see damaged tombs, broken gravestones and statues. What person would want to do such a thing?! That makes me very angry and I just can’t understand a person doing something like that. What a dishonour! The most hearbreaking things are broken angels, little fellows with broken wings or no heads. Like this one here. It’s the grave of a baby. How sad to have a broken angel on top of it. But the beautiful thing that caught my eye is how the persons taking care of the tomb managed to make something beautiful out of it – using the angel’s body as a vase. Somehow the whole picture breaks my heart…
