“I’ll meet you at the cemetery gates “

I confess to being one of those who likes to wander around a good graveyard, not out of morbidity but I simply find them visually interesting and poignant places. There was an interesting piece on Radio 4 the other day about humorous and elegiac epitaphs, none surpassed though by the great Spike Milligan’s ” I told you I was ill”. Anyway as today is one of those “dreaded sunny days” that Morrissey sang about in the 80’s and the photograph is from that same era I thought it would be (in)appropriate. I’m off on my annual pilgrimage to that melting pot of English culture the Epsom Derby this afternoon and I would prefer, both from a photographic and sunburn point of view, that there were a few more clouds in the sky.
