Wandering around a graveyard the other day I came across a memorial to the Lee family. There was just something about the starkness and simplicity of the name, the strength of the lettering and the layered design in the cold marble. I liked it and therefore I photographed it.

My brother's middle name and my great uncle's first name. Robert E. liked having it tag along too. Memorials can be so fascinating. I found an stone that I really liked and told my wife I want mine to look like that. She did not smile and was a lot disturbed to think I wanted to pick out my own.

There is quite a following of gravestone "rubbings", which look very cool when done and framed.
I think the ornate headstones are very neat, too.

I like your photo and description of why you liked it. Nice.

I think you could be right about Ursulla.

Hi Alan

I like this name plate as uncle a new Zealander of Maori descent was surnamed Lee. He would not say but I often wondered if he had some Chinese heritage there too.

Thanks for popping into my neck of the wooods so that I can visit you..

Happy days
