cemetery, Olympia, algae, tombstone


Odd Fellows Cemetery, Olympia, WA

Jeffers was on 19 years of age when he died in 1897.  Algae, moss, and weather are slowly obscuring the last memories of his life.  It's as if the tombstones have the same permanence as fallen leaves, just on a different time scale.  Photo © copyright by Stephen Penland.
