The Ruins of Pompeii

Photographed only a few days ago at the ruins of Pompeii in Italy, this image immediately struck me as a strong visual statement to our humanity and the cycle of life. To me, the beam of light represents all of our starting points – creation. The horrific expression of death forever frozen on this poor souls face is unforgettable. It’s a bizarre moment to witness a modern person walking by this glass case and locking gazes with a face frozen in vocanic ash nearly two thousand years ago.
