When you are photographing cemeteries and later review your photos do you find one that speaks to you on some level or becomes one of your favorite cemetery photos? I do. Perhaps I'm not alone. Does anyone have one framed and hung?
I am presenting a genealogy workshop in the fall and one of my sessions will be titled "Cemetery Art & Symbolism". My goal is to provide basic information on the various types of cemeteries and the symbolism found on the headstones. And, how they offer an afternoon of discovery where beauty can be found in the old stones and epitaphs.
As I go through my photos to prepare my outline I find many that are considered "favorites". Two of them are used as my blog header and footer photos. Taken in the historic Linwood Cemetery in my hometown of Columbus, GA, they tease you with a sampling of what you will find there. You need a full day to explore Linwood.
A few other favorites were included in my post "A Walk at Wildmead".
If you have one of your favorite's on a blog feel free to share the link in the comments section.
