Reaching for Gold

Reaching for gold, Lakeview Cemetery, Cleveland, OH.

On my recent trip to Cleveland’s Lakeview Cemetary I came upon this statue on a gravestone that,  just like me, seemed drawn to the golden leaves above!  The fall colors at Lakeview were absolutely breathtaking that day.  A few days later, the foliage was basically gone.  Fortunately I was there that day to reach for the gold with this statue and managed to grab a bit of it!

About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.
