More Creepy Cemetery Photoblogging

5 comments May 9th, 2006at 12:29pm Posted by Eli

I found a few more photos from the creepy gothic cemetery which (hopefully) don’t totally suck…

Nobody dies it like Sarah Lee…

Yes, I’m going to Hell.

Lines between the Reid.

Civil War era, I think. And not in good shape.

It looks like a statue of some kind of caped and hooded person, but it’s actually an urn draped with a blanket. Posted by Picasa

    Thanks, jay!

    You must have some kind of special photo radar – you seem to magically appear whenever there’s a photo…

    Feh. You think that stuff is creepy?? You ain’t seen creepy till you see the cemetery in my back yard.

    Okay, I don’t have anything as monumental as that, um, hooded guy, but my Civil War era stones are in better shape than yours, and with more entertaining inscriptions. I actually have one with the immortal inscription:

    Beloved friend, as you pass by,
    As you are now, so once was I.
    As I am now, soon you shall be,
    Prepare for death, and follow me.

    I do not, alas, have the classic followup, “To follow you I am not content/For how do I know which way you went?”

    Nice pix anyway… :)

    When I was taking photography courses, we always went to old cemeteries to practice metering for B&W. I lived in an area (mid TN) where there were some really old, rather strange cemeteries, and grew to love taking pictures there. Hand carved cherubs that resemble gouty, pop-eyed lawn gnomes with anemic wings popping incongruously out of their armpits were my favorite subjects. When the sun hit them just right, you automatically glanced over your shoulder to see if Virgil and Dante were standing behind you.

    The pix are nicely composed; your captions are freaking great!

    Thanks, Xan and rev!

    There was actually one obelisk-y grave marker which had the guy’s whole life story wrapped around it.

    And I have much creepier stuff here and here…
