On a Sunday morning in New Orleans, a man pays his respects at a famous local cemetery. I assume he's done this for years.
I refrained from showing this photo for a couple of years out of respect for the man, and the deceased. Then one evening I was strolling down the sidewalk to a gallery opening in New Orleans, when I saw the man!
He was wearing the same hat and coat, and I recognized his face! He had his wife with him, and I told him of the photo, and why I liked it, as well as why I'd never shared it. He and his wife were very nice, and encouraged me to share whatever photo I like.
I also found out that the grave he was visiting was that of a very respected member of his clergy, who made a difference in his and many others' lives. Notice the rocks placed at the altar and mantle...a symbolic act that indicates someone has come to visit and the deceased hasn't been forgotten.
