Unreachable Resting Place One of the saddest splores I have seen of late, an old lady slowly withered away downstairs on a makeshift bed surrounded by filth and buckets to catch the dripping water leaking in all around.Here is the room she could no longer get to.A former nurse and in the caring profession but it appeared no one cared for her.The still ticking clock next to the deathbed downstairs from this and the little watch on the nurse uniform eerily both had the same time on them.
If the jaw isn't strapped shut when a body is mummified, it naturally falls open during the process of decay, leaving a permanent "scream." Most modern burial practices account for this -- the ghost of Jacob Marley, Scrooge's business partner in A Christmas Carol, is always shown with that weird headband/chinstrap for precisely this reason. But not all cultures take closing the jaw into account, or sometimes the knots tying the mouth shut just slip.
St-Etienne, jou ons by Jurg Roessen Fotografie. "An ultimate abandonned place, which will be taken over by nature and the next playfull generation; children. The subtitle is 'Jou ons', what means as much as 'play on'." Playful photo collage of St Etienne-le-vieux (Caen, Normandy, France), bombed out in 1944. Beautiful!
