If this is a taste of what this cemetery holds, then I say, bring it on. I would love to see some details of the style and atmosphere of the graveyard, Frank.

Health and happiness to you and yours as we track into 2010.

Hi Frank. What a wonderfully composed picture. It looks great in black and white.

What a great picture!

Lois said...

Excellent shot Frank! This picture looks like it could have been taken a hundred years ago.

The monumental mason had a tall order there.
Interesting.

Ornate cemeteries are great places for black and white photos. The Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires is likely the best.

Good one Frank. You really caught the "old" in this shot. Nice texture and tonality.

Elliott does not have your typical tombstone. The elongated photo and rough texture give this a lot of impact.

Wow. This is perfect in b&w. What a great angle you've taken here.

Nice! I don't think I have ever been there...

Hilda said...

A very handsome image.

I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas, Frank. Wishing you a joyful, peaceful and love-filled new year. And I hope Dr. Porter lets you put away the tree!

What an awesome monument! An interesting shot!

I guess this is around the late 1890s or so; Victorian. It's strange how they felt this need to build in the classical style, and completely out of context. Nice shot.

Sweet! Well done. We'll have to drive through there one day soon.

Great shot. It looks like you've been photographing for a lot of years.
