13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
EARTHBOUND--Masonic Mausoleum

This image was captured during a photoshoot to sell a vintage dress and winged fascinator on Etsy. We had a fabulous photoshoot in this Masonic cemetery and captured many epic/symbolic images! I really liked this one in particular, because of the synergy between way the human subject is framed (in the lower portion), her troubled expression and the way her hand is gripping the bars, the white winged hat, and the Masonic chain above. I think it speaks volumes about the nature of human existence on this earth and about Life & Death.
