Grief is Borne when Loss is Born

Photo taken by contributor MB, a 52-year-old writer and photographer living in recovery from depression in southwest London.

About this photo: “I took this in September in a cemetery near where I live.  I think it’s rather unusual in that it depicts loss and grief, but also beauty and love.  I had to time the shoot rather precisely because I wanted the sun to be setting just above one of the angel’s shoulders, but I also needed to be out of the cemetery before it closed.  I feel that photography has given me a new lease of life, with fewer feelings of helplessness and hopelessness – in fact this photo won an award in a borough-wide photography competition with the theme of conflict and remembrance.
