I visit a lot of cemeteries ... sometimes I'm looking for someone in particular, and sometimes it's just to take photos. (I do genealogy research, and I'm one of the many photo volunteers throughout the country for 'Find A Grave', a wonderful web site that documents and catalogs cemeteries.)
Old cemeteries have a lovely feeling about them. The passage of time eases the rough edges on the monuments, and gives them so much character and grace. Many times, I find flowers cultivated among the stones ... roses, peonies, daffodils, iris, and other survivors.
This looks like a very nice place to spend one's final rest, don't you think?
