VIA| Cemeteries have long been known to have a mysterious and strange air about them. They give some people the creeps, and other people creativity.
For people like David Joles, cemeteries can present some of the most surreal and strange images of all time, as he was able to show in a photograph he took of a strange woman in black in a cemetery.
Joles is a photographer for the Minneapolis Star Tribune, and on his way home form work during a snow storm he decided to stop at Fort Snelling National Cemetery, Minnesota. Joles thought the cemetery would be peaceful and vacant due to the inclement weather, but he was wrong.
Wandering through the cemetery alone in a long black coat, a woman glided across the snow, paused for a moment in reflection, and then continues away like she was never there.
Joles was mesmerized by the sight, and so he decided to snap a photo of the occurrence.
The photograph has since received over 10,000 likes and shares, and is stirring up much conversation.
The identity of the woman has not been discovered, and nobody has come out saying it was them in the cemetery that day, however people like Joles believe it is better that nobody knows who the woman is.
Though she is a blank face to many, she represents every face in a way. Joles says, “Even though you can’t tell who that woman’s identity is, people see different people in that, they see their own loved ones.”
