My World Tuesday



Here's an unusual photo from my visits to local cemeteries:



Little boy and dragon seen at a grave in St. Michael's cemetery in Astoria, Queens.

It occurred to me that this could be a sculpture to represent Puff the Magic Dragon and Little Jackie Paper.

That certainly is unusual. It makes me feel a little sad, though, that perhaps this is the grave of a little boy who loved dragons and his grieving parents had this erected for him...? It's very touching.

First of all I love your header and the words! Wonderful, Mary! I agree with Janice, the photo of the little boy and the dragon is sad and very touching! Beautiful capture! Have a great week!

This is such a precious photo. I don't think I've ever seen a dragon in a cemetery. How special!

This is precious. I want to think that this is the grave of a little child. So sad.

I love the expression on the little boy's face. And to see such a gentle dragon is delightful.

I agree with everyone else who daid it, you kind of assume it is for a little boy. A lovely touching tribute though.

Very nicely composed photo...very sweet and makes me wonder the significance...the child loved dragons, perhaps is the answer here.

Poignant and sad noting these figures. It must have a special meaning either for the family or the lost one. Very nice photo.

That reminds me of the song, "Puff the Magic Dragon." Very sweet.

I love the photos, Teach. Wonderful photos! We're having fun in My Muskoka playing on the ice!

I created a video of cemetery shots. Glad I'm not the only one!!!!

My thoughts were the same as Janice's. Graveyards embody the sadness of loss to me.
