Your pictures: Sorrow
Each week, we publish a gallery of readers' pictures on a set theme. This week it is "sorrow".
Ela Fraczkowska: "This is a portrait of my grandmother and I really don't think you need to know her in order to tell what her face expresses. I took it in Poland in her house."
Hector Carvajal: "Immediately after seeing this tiny little flower outliving the rest, it became clear to me that this was something worth capturing. I find myself appreciating the tiniest of things."
Doris Enders: "What a tragedy, I thought when I passed these four crosses by a roadside in Texas, USA. I could still feel the sorrow it had caused."
Anne Jones: "When I found this rosebud alone on a bush, never having had the time to fully bloom, these words by Edgar Allan Poe immediately came to mind, 'Deep in earth my love is lying. And I must weep alone'."
Jenny Downing: "Disaster struck. Tears were shed!"
Angela Mayne: "This describes the sorrow of mankind to me, taken at Pompeii, Italy."
Sarah Brewer: “You cannot escape grief, you learn to accept it as an ebb and flow of pain and peace. This photo was taken during a visit to my dad’s resting place after an unexpected loss."
And finally, a sculpture at a cemetery in Belgrade, Serbia from Maria Zaric. The next theme is "Fantastic voyage", and the deadline for your entries is 30 January.
