[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have a sprawling graveyard near my home where only one kind of tree grows and these trees are called toothbrush trees in English and Pillu/peelu or Metha Jaal in Urdu and Saraiki respectively(a regional language of Pakistan).Its botanical name is Salvadora oleiodes.
While making a short cut home through this graveyard, I spotted this jenny ass/mare with her few days old foal in the peace and quiet of the graveyard, undisturbed by the neighbourhood boys. In a fine display of light and shade or what we call in beautiful English 'dappled shade' stood the two enjoying the serene scene around them. I was deeply impressed by this sight and took a number of shots one of which I am posting here, perhaps with a desire to convey the serenity of the scene, the peculiar solitude which prevails in a graveyard. Our tree's equivalent in English is the cypress tree which is so typical of graveyards in an English setting in particular.
