Salem Cemetery

Recently I spent the afternoon at Salem Cemetery in Winston-Salem. I was taking photographs for a swap with Swap-Bot. Here are a couple of my favorites.

I am loving my new boots!

Made of soft leather, the Kiele Boot features embroidered cherry blossoms. Cherry blossoms have symbolic meaning both in Chinese and Japanese cultures; in China the blossoms are a symbol of feminine power, and beauty. Japanese culture associates the cherry blossom with impermanence, because it is a delicate flower that blooms for a very short time. It’s as if to say not to get too attached to a particular outcome or become emotional because “this too shall pass” in time.
