New Photography














Yesterday I visited Mt. Calvary Catholic Cemetery. I drive by it frequently and have noticed the very old headstones and statues and I'm intrigued.  Looking around on Flickr, I see a lot of cemetery photography, some more tasteful than others.  I emailed a Flicker contact, liquidnight, who has posted many photos of Lone Fir Cemetery. She gave me some good info. Mostly I didn't want to disturb or upset anyone by taking photos. When I visited this cemetery, I stopped at the office which was closed and soon discovered that there was no one in sight and decided to drive the lanes. I was able to take some photos from the car and even get out a few places, but really it was too rainy. I hope to return again soon and explore some more. I think because of the historical nature of the cemetery, photography is common.

  1. There is just something about reading really old head stones , I have always done this I find it fascinating to read them from the past way back in the 1800s or farther ! I picture what it was like back then through the dates ! Sounds a bit morbid but I am weird lol . Wonderful photos . Have a good evening !

  2. I love doing pictures in cemeteries. They are peaceful, informative and usually have some of the best bird watching you can find because of the lack of people!
