Weekly Photo Challenge – Creepy?

I have a great affection for cemeteries.  I find them to be beautiful, soulful places where I can get lost in peaceful reflection.  I can spend hour upon hour exploring and discovering stories left untold.  Yet I know that to some people cemeteries can be unnerving, and perhaps even a bit creepy.   I hope you enjoy my take on this week’s photo challenge!

  1. Many communities have turned large, rambling sections of cemeteries (typically ones that are “full”) into a sort of open public park, complete with shaded groves, benches, fountains, and well-maintained pathways. Also, mausoleums are often beautiful works of architecture that reflect personal style and evoke particular eras or themes. All great photo fodder!

  3. Like so many of the others who commented, I love to spend time in cemeteries. It’s heartening to see I’m not alone.

    What you’ve shown here is technically a churchyard. In Minnesota, we don’t have many, and when we do, they are not so dense with stones. Here we have mostly graveyards which are separated from their churches, sometimes by miles. I got to visit my first churchyard when I vacationed in North Carolina last year. It was absolutely beautiful … and of course the graves were much older than any in the upper Midwest.

    • Great point- I would not have thought to make the clarification on the churchyard vs the graveyard. I would think the cemeteries in Minnesota would look incredibly beautiful in the wintertime after a fresh snowfall. I’d love to see that…
