I hope you've all had a great 2008 :)

But, life continues and I my first upload from '09 isnt that happy.

Here's the only photo that I will upload from my grandmother's funeral. I initially didnt plan on uploading a single one, but this one tells a story.

Its supposed to be a dark scene, it was quite depressing to stand there while it was snowing.
Also note the reaching hand at the left.

EDIT:

Wow, my first DD here at Deviantart :)

I dont know what to say, I'm glad that I get noticed like this.

Pay your grandparents a visit while they're still here, and ask them what you want to know about them and their lives. I lost 3 of them in 1,5 years, you never know when they will pass away.

very profound in its tonally subdued capture...

peace 2 U... I suspect that your Grandma would feel honoured if she was able to see the shot...

I just came back from my own Granny's funeral, only a few hours ago. I loved her very much and we had one fine party celebrating her exuberant and amazing life.

One of the greatest photos I have seen in DA. Everything excels on it, the mood, the subjects, the moment...

Thank you for sharing this with us.

The snow really does it. And the faces... really hit home. I think most of us remember exactly how that feels. Thank you for sharing your grief.

Even though that's really sad, that's a really amazing photo.
I'm so sorry

I wish I could. Neither of my grandfathers will really talk much about their lives. They were both involved in WWII and neither of refuse to talk about anything relating to that time and their lives in general. They prefer to live in the present and not remember the past. I wish they would change their mind cause I love talking to the older generation because they know so much more then we could ever wish to know in our short years of life. I am sorry for the lose of your grandmother. I am 26 years old and I have had to bury 31 people including my father and my fiance. Death is easy. We have no reason to fear it because it is destined to happen to us all no matter if we are homeless on the streets or billionaires in 500 million dollars mansions. It is the loss of that person that those left behind that causes so much pain.

I can understand what you´re living in this moment because I lost my two grandmothers last year but life continues and we have to accept it

That must've been hard to photograph. It's beautiful, though...
