So Iz minding my own business the other day driving to pickup a client and take to a doctors appointment, she lives in a trailer, renting the space it sits on, and the space rented is in a cemetery. As I approach the trailer out of the corner of the right photographic eye there is a VW Van parked under a roof. Hhhmmm.

Soz when the client is securely buckled in the Scion and we drive off I inquire, because it wants to know, “So is there someone going to be buried in that VW Van?”

Client surprised by the question, ” Ah, no actually it is for ashes.”

“You mean there is a party planning for interment?”

Client now running all cylinders selling, “Well, close. You see the back tailgate comes down and the family of the loved one has their ceremony as the urn is placed on the gate then the urn is sealed in the van.”

Me, “Really, what a novel idea for someone that lived the 60’s and 70’s. Hippies, man.”

Client now with a broad smile and still selling it, “The only problem is that no one seems to know or have heard of this despite our advertising it. You, of all the other medical transit drivers, are the first to show interest.”

Me astonished at this bit of information, “Really!”

Client: “Some have asked about it but showed no real desire to know about it.”

“I know you have an appointment to make but do you mind if I snap some fast photographs? I have a blog I’d love to share this on.”

Client delighted at my expression of interest: “Why no not at all.”

With photographs below safely digitized we head off to make her appointment. Bringing my camera to work not only prepares me for the sudden find but has intensified my intentionally looking for those golden nuggets to capture even if it is a bit psychedelic.

I enjoy photography, writing, walking, nature, reading, and of course the coooolest game on earth HOCKEY! I took up photography in 9th grade and seeing the world in a different light wanting to, of course, photograph everything, unfortunately not everything comes out the way I'd like.
