Three Graves and an old Wall

I'm pretty sure this cemetery dates back to the 1700's. I saw several graves of revolutionary war veterans.

  1. Wow, they do look like old gravestones. I like the shape of the one on the left. Looks like he died young.

  3. Pretty intense shot and a great one in mono. I wonder why these tombstones are tilted.

  5. Old cemeteries are such interesting places to meander around. You can't help but wonder what the life of the person must have been like and how they died...especially in the cemeteries of Europe. Those dates really go back in time.

  11. One of my favorite cemeteries was in Boston. There is something about being close enough to read a headstone and to understand that someone wanted that marker there as a tribute to someone who passed through here.

  12. Very interesting photo. I too wonder about the person who was buried under such a stone, there is a little cemetary near one of our hikiing spots that is full of the same type of stones, mostly family members.

  13. See? That's why I gotta hit the road. The west coast has NOTHING like that. I'd much rather photograph old stuff...

    great pic!

    Have a nice weekend, James! Here it's raining again, we've barely seen any traces of summer...

  17. Love the play of shadow and light across the stones and ground and the contrast between the dark background wall and the lighter foreground. Lovely composition and shot!

  20. PS...I went window shopping for my next camera. I am thinking of the Canon 50 D. Going to sell my old flute and piccolo to try and make it happen. :)
