Graveyards have always held a huge attraction for me.
Not a morbid one.
They seem to give me perspective.
Graveyard photography fascinated me and turned quickly into a new passion in my solitary rambles.
Quite a change compared to my bustling “normal” life.
I am a sports journalist working for German public television and live only part-time in Scotland unfortunately.
But when I am here, I am always out to explore the graveyards. I check maps and guide books, keep my eyes open and my camera ready, wherever I go. I gather stories, take pictures, ponder about the beauty of life and death. There seems to be no end to the interesting details my research comes up with.
I belive in the old baroque dualism: carpe diem and memento mori. You can only seize the day if you are aware of the fact that it might be your last.
I go out and enjoy!
