Hello! Not posted in a while, have many other projects going on. This is an interesting picture as it’s taken at the burial ground in the now abandoned (apart from when in use for filming) St. Joseph’s Missionary College, London. You can read more about the place here.
What better way to spend a rain sloshed Sunday than slithering about Hendon Crematorium with my macro lens? I haven’t got a good collection of graveside detail so far, I mean a real ‘close-up’. So today I concentrated on taking tight shots and spent time looking for details that really stood out – ornaments, flowers (both real and not), cracks, chips, growths and grooves. Here follows an establishing shot of the lovely gothic Old English signage, plus a few of my favourites from today…
Thanks to Simon Farr for his extensive Ypres archive.
The following have been so kind as to mention me in or link me from their blogs. It’s only right that I do the same in return, especially because all of the blogs below are excellent resources for grave minded folk.
Favourite Graves is pretty self-explanatory as a blog concept. These are my favourite graves for you to look at.
Favourite graves are not restricted to cemeteries. They can be roadside shrines, memorials, marked land, burial sites and so on.
Memento mori dear folk, and please, enjoy your time here while it lasts.
