In the corner of the cemetery

A local cemetery has the small building depicted in today’s photo stood in its corner. While the cemetery is fully-enclosed by a hedge (with a gate to allow public access), this corner is also open to the street allowing a photo to be made without much obstruction. I’ve photographed the same building a few times now as a nearby tree casts lovely mottled shadows across the brickwork when the conditions are right. I’m not sure of the building’s function – I don’t think it’s a chapel or anything like that – but it’s probably used for storing equipment used to manage and maintain the cemetery grounds and graves. I did go into the cemetery once to take a closer look, but saw that there were some people tending a grave nearby, so left again in order to respect their privacy.

My injured leg is feeling better today (though not to the extent that I will attempt to run on it!) so I went for a walk. I was able to maintain a decent pace without any significant discomfort (although maybe a little when climbing and descending the steps of the railway bridges). It will likely be at least a week before I consider running again, but I managed to make a few photos while out walking today, which I likely wouldn’t have done had I been out for a run.

Today’s haiku:

Single traffic bridge
Awaiting my turn to cross
A boy slips in mud
