Bukit Brown

I’ve been trying to persuade my colleague to visit the cemetery with me, and while I’ve since won that battle, it seems the harder one is actually finding the time to head over.

Some photographs from earlier visits…

a broken gate to mark the space
image
nature taking its course, as always.
broken stones in shade, in shadow

image

‘flatmates’ in life, now forever neighbours after.
or perhaps ‘forever’ spoken too soon, when an expressway threatens their rest.

image

nevertheless, accompanied in the afterlife by pets, illegally perhaps

image

but always in style – only pretty tiles, please, for our dearly departed.

image

guarded by perpetual sentinels, one for the house, another to patrol the grounds

image

some of whom are not averse to the occasional selfie, or we-fie.

image

till next time, then.
