No matter where you go, there you are.

No Ordinary Love (with no ordinary images)


I had never seen this before, and the photographer had no background information. So after reading through the comments on Flickr, someone who lived in the area was able to provide a few more details. And another user found the link to the artist’s website.

the gravestone IS amazing…the detail and the pose are both provocative and disturbing at the same time. The way her hair is spread out and her right hand gripping the edge is so incredibly realistic! What a wonderful piece of work.

the gravestone by itself. the perspective of this, along with all the other ordinary gravestones is just amazing. the contrast between the feminine curves and the rectangular edges is so stark and stunning
