Old Cemetery....

Today's post is going to be a little different. While out looking for more subjects to photograph, I found this old cemetery. And I just had to take a closer look. Most of the stone where unreadable. But a few caught my eye.





This one is dated 1777.

And this one of a Revolutionary War Veteren was dated 1819.
I had to brush away a good bit of leaves and dirt to see this plaque.

Wonderful finds. I love old cemetaries. I have some pictures of one waiting for a post... someday (it's on my list). But nothing I have is that old. Thanks for sharing this!

Cool shots. If you use photoshot try desaturating the image then up the contrast. Usually give a very dramatic B/W.

Fantastic Find!!! Old gravestones are so great - I always feel bad for the ones you can't read anymore.

I once stumbled upon a gravestone that read:
"Weep not my friends
Who are so dear,
I am not dead,
but sleeping here."

I never forgot that. Thanks for sharing!

Dates on graves date back beyond the founding date. The cemetery closed down in 1858 after achieving its maximum capacity, thus being referred as the "Old" Protestant Cemetery.

Give some thought to the natural look provided by natural such as wicker furniture. Choose wisely; then, kick back and enjoy the benefits of your wisest decision.
