Lovely and spirited

She was something. I was privileged to photograph her small but beautiful mausoleum at Allegheny Cemetery in Pittsburgh, when I visited there in March of 2017. Over the ornate bronze doors is carved the name LILLIAN RUSSELL MOORE. More than 150 deer live in the cemetery grounds and they wander freely, sleeping at night hunkered next to tombstones. They're a wonder to behold, not afraid of people and happy to have their picture taken. A local man brings food for them every day as he has done for years.
