Headstone

Headstone

There are many of these markers at the cemetery in Hollywood. What should one’s last image be? Some people look like they are at the beach, some wear hats and berets, some look drunk at a party, some couples have an age disagreement with one spouse choosing a photo of themselves young while the other chose a recent photo. Rather than seeming creepy, this practice strikes me as sort of cheerful. I like this one, he is caught in the middle of living, it’s an active snap shot. He is not a master of the universe but one mastering life in another way.
