These are some photos that my niece and I took in one of the cemeteries in our city. This is just a very small sampling of of what it looks like.
The house is the caretakers home.
The steps are at the beginning of the cemetery, which is HUGE.
The are so many statues and monuments and mausoleums.
Some headstones have the actual photograph of the deceased set into the stone and covered in glass.
One grave has a statue of a dog laying next to his owners burial site.
There are so many that date back more than 100 years.
We took just a few pictures and were very careful not to intrude on anyone visiting or let them see us taking pictures in case of they might think that we were being disrespectful.
I thought for Halloween the photos might look best in black and white.
