I like how the moss has colored the markers.
Yip Brent, that I like too.
... photos from an utterly different place in contrast with your pictures. This Dutch graveyard
seems to me unique and is forever kept so perfectly tidy.

The intended ethereal look of the photos results from the use of a Leitz Summar 2/50 (slightly scratched front lens)
Unfortunately, war graves like that aren't anything close to unique. Northern France is littered with them. It's sad to think how many young lives were lost in senseless wars...
Should I have given more information? These are civilians´graves and unique refers to its appearance among the other graves in that cemetery. - You are completely right about war graves in France. Years ago I travelled from Hartmannsweiler Kopf (Vosges)to Arras -a nightmarish experience - in order to take photos for an exhibition.
A fairly recognizable tomb, and a precision 21 steps.

This is so poignant, I think. The rose is artificial, but is regularly renewed.
Superb! What a gesture by a feeling person and what a contrast to the neglect my photos of childrens graves show

Another church, another boneyard.
I'll stop now with a couple of Egyptian mummified cats.
