Cemetery Photos

Please don't think I'm weird or disrespectful, but one of my favorite places in town is the cemetery. 

This cememtery dates prior to 1831. 

It's the final resting place for soldiers of the confederacy and victims of shipwrecks and yellow fever. 

It's so beautiful and haunting and magical. 

I love the way the light comes through the trees and moss.

This place takes my breath away.

I want to pack up my Nikon and all my lenses and go on a photo shooting journey with you, what do you think?! I am just in love with your style and love that you are obsessed with sunflare like me too! :) Bravo lovely lady!

  5. Very cool. I don't think your'e weird. My brother has an old cemetary in CT - we used to take the kids "stone rubbing" making impressions of the stones on paper. There's also a famous & gorgeous cemetary in the bronx where friends of ours plan on taking their wedding pics.

  14. I think it's cool if you are respectful (which it is obvious you are). I get sad when I go to an old cemetary and can't even see the engravings on the tombstones anymore because they're so weather worn. So, you're taking photos helps preserve the memories.

  15. Those are some great pictures!!! They remind me of the scene from Double Jeopardy in the New Orleans cemetery!

    I especially love those wire markers - I've never seen anything like that before! So interesting!
