    memories sharp as daggars, pierce thru the flesh of today. the suicide of love took away all that matters and buried the remains in an unmarked grave in your heart.

    hold me, like you held on to life,
    when all fears came alive and entombed me....

    i dream of the winter in my heart, turning to spring, while the ice
    gives way under my feet...

    the first three i took yesterday of anicole..the two others are ones she took of me, and i took the last one...
    can you imagine us around your cemetary?? needless to say, we got
    alot of looks...but we usually do....
    thanks for looking...

    the words are from songs by 'HIM'.....dark light album

    Oh wow!!! These are killer. I love all of them. I love the mystery and the feeling to these. Awesome work on these. I would love to try these shots with the lensbaby. I think the last two shots really stand out for me. I cant stop looking at these.

    man, ya'll are blowing me away...thank you... when i pulled them up on my computer last night, my husband was less than enthusiastic...he kinda felt like i was being sacreligious.....i dont mean to offend anyone... i just kinda know grief intimately....( so does anicole..)

    thanks for all the kind words...i just really loved the first two...cause for one, i have always felt real greif made you prone... just ripped your heart out of your chest...and the look on anicoles face is just killer...she is a great model....thanks again.

    it was fun, chic .... only you and I could drape artlessly over tombstones to pose and think it was 'a great day.'

    Now if we just had a set of giant wings ....

    kinda funny...there was a huge stone angel that i wanted to pose nicole like...and i told her then, we should have bought the huge black wings we had seen at halloween... maybe we can this next one...

    we would look like victorias secret models from h*ll.....:lmao:

    thinking we will keep props around, and utilize them for week end shoots..and if we have a personal funeral on the way, then, heck, we are prepared...( i'm always dressed for a good funeral....!!)

    btw chiller...i'm in the dang photos too....( always a funeral director, never a corpse....)
