‘Til Death Do Us Part

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI have been dying (no pun intended) to go to a cemetery and take pictures. A graveyard lends to an eerie cold atmosphere that I have wanted to capture. R surprised me on V-day by whisking me off to a Cemetery in Philly. I know that sounds weird – but there are so many love stories of the past buried at Laurel Hill Cemetery. Some are estranged lovers bought together at their resting place, while others are long love stories that have finally found their bed. Its great to hear, see and admire not only these tales but also the lovely ornate architecture of the Cemetery. I posted a few pictures below if you would like to see more Click here. Happy Valentines Day all.

Thanks for the comments - it was spooky and eerie but great fun. Can't wait to go back in the Fall when there are beautiful red - yellow leaves all over :)

There is indeed something very lonely and eerie about the photos - a quality of timelessness somehow.

I'm guessing this cemetry is pretty old...

The two gravestones leaning against each other is especially poignant.
