A Beautiful Death.

So today I got a call early this morning and was told that my grandmother had been brought to the ER. About 6 hours later, she passed on. Of course, I’m sad that she isn’t here anymore, but I’m glad that she is finally able to rest in peace.

I took some photos today. Some people might find it odd that I would take photos of someone dying let alone put them up on a blog, but that’s kind of my way of dealing with things I guess.

Life and Death aren’t two opposites; rather they are apart of each other. Death is perhaps the most honest and natural part of our lives.. It’s a tragic thing, but even within that tragedy lies a beauty of sorts. Liberation, peace, rest, freedom. That is the beauty in death. Today was A Beautiful Death.

  1. Very intimate post, thank you for sharing. It seems that you kept her alive through these photographs. Metaphorically and literally. I love that you photographed the heart rates. If you think about it… all photographs really talk about is “death”…and the dying of a moment. You catch my drift?

  2. thanks for the comment! i agree with your opinion about the dying of a moment.
