Wordless Wednesday: Aunt Bell

Well... Almost Wordless Wednesday.  Do you remember the movie The Others with Nicole Kidman?  Where she finds the photo album and is shocked that all the pictures are of dead people?  Since Halloween and All Saints Day is almost upon us, I thought I'd share my only post mortem picture.

Cyntha Isabelle (Stroud) Lewis
2 Jan 1867 - 17 Jul 1938


  1. Ya know, these always kinda creep me out, but I also think they are beautiful in a way too. The ones that really disturb me though are those of Moms holding their babies.

  2. I agree! Post mortem photos definately have an eerie quality to them, but I think its because we hide death now. Its not a part of everyday life the way it used to be.
