I like the almost similar perspective and background of these two photos, counterbalanced by the contrast new-and-shiny vs old-and-mossy.
Yes, quite alike, yet so different.
Oh I love that mossy gravestone! That's cool! :0)
From Kia: Thank you, Terry! Mossy gravestones seem to be quite the norm here, whereas in Italy they are mostly like Jaana's, smooth and shiny.
Rest in peace to all the souls of old xx
I love the artistic look of both, I also love graveyards, they are so peaceful.... Great work ladies :)
We both love them, too. :)
I love to wander around old grave yards. I look at the head stones and wonder about the lives of the people and the families that still leave flowers. Here is a link to one day last summer when I did that.http://growingupgramma.blogspot.com/2011/08/lives-of-past.html
Your story about Hazel York was lovely; and what a pleasure, not only to see the old headstones, but also the sights you passed on the way to the cemetery.
Graveyards have got so many stories to tell. One can not but start wondering about the lives behind the names... Thank you for sharing your touching post about your visit to the cemetery in Attica, Becky.
Here's a shot from the Old City Cemetery in Sacramento. I'm told there are quite a few historical figures buried there, but I came in just before closing and got a little too sidetracked with the gardens to find out exactly which historical figures, on this trip.
Thank you for sharing your photo, Molly. Of course, we had to google Joseph Green. Is he maybe the poet Joseph Green?
