Sunny afternoon in a peaceful spot

Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me;
the carriage held but just ourselves
and Immortality

~Emily Dickinson~

A sunny afternoon visit to a cemetary yields some fascinating stones:

Creepy moments: the moseleum was locked but just inside the door were several caskets awaiting burial. Too strange to pass up a photo, but don't think I'm a total weirdo.
Also very creepy was the discovery of an old tomb at the back top of the cemetary. The door was doubly sealed with cement. I could tell because of the holes in the cement where someone had tried to get in. Two layers of thick cement to keep a tomb closed...interesting....

Big fan, as you know! Any place where people are dying to get in has to be a great place to photograph! I know..that joke died! Very nice photos and happy that you enjoyed the peacefulness that a cemetery provides.

I love the first image (the cross) the best. The texture is seems to come alive in your photo. I think you should collect "crosses"'re off to a great start! :-)
P.S. I also love the Emily Dickinson poem.

Nice detail images of the cemetery. My favorite is the zooming one, followed by the second one.
