Pondering mortality

Pondering mortality
Originally uploaded by Die Strafbar
Took a tour of Pennsylvania's Coal Region yesterday. Outside Centralia, there is a coal hill that covers a lot of unmapped area between roads. While 4x4'ing the XTerra on one of these remote rocky paths, we came upon this memorial, apparently for a young boy that died. The marker was surprisingly well kept despite its location. Toys surrounded the homemade cross and cherubs; army men, hotwheels, etc. Quite a surreal finding.

That darkening sky was a storm headed our way, provided astounding contrast with the blazing sun at my back.

This photo can also be seen and discussed in the Discussion section of my new website: Die Strafbar Photography.
