I saw the subject and decided to venture out to the local pioneer cemetery on a drizzly Saturday afternoon.

First one: Stubenrauchstrasse Cemetry, Berlin-Friedenau (where Marlene Dietrich and Helmut Newton were buried - and Ottomar Anschütz, one of the contributors to the invention of the leaf shutter). Second one: closed-down Jewish Cemetery, Hannover (Nobody allowed to enter, authorities obviously still being afraid of Nazi hooligans, sad thing to admit).

What a shame. Here in NC, they recently caught three kids who defaced a bunch of headstones in a cemetary. A local stone quarry repaired the headstones for free that same week, without comments - they just showed up and did it. And the boys? They face felony charges - the PA says he won't reconsider - they're over 18 and going to go to prison - it is a felony here.

Best Regards,

I have always cemeteries fascinating. The headstones and monuments in old sections can be works of art. Here are two shots from my Yashica GSN.

Sorry for the tiny images. The two photos are also in my gallery.

Old cemetary of Vysehrad in Prague, near the Capitular SS. Peter & Paul gothic church. I've heard that nowadays it's used as a sort of pantheon of famous people of the czech nation.

I have some others I'd like to post later - but picking up on dexdog's post (#2) the "finger" was apparently a very popular theme in the 19th C. - this was taken a a Reformed (f.k.a. Dutch Reformed) churchyard in Copake:

As of April 18 2006 Britain has nine surviving veterans of The Great War. We currently have proposals underway to honour the last veteran to pass on with a full state funeral, see here.
I do not know how many survive in other countries who fought.

Wow, he died just five days before the Armistice! :(

A large percent of that cemetary is from this battle. They fought the Turks for this city (beersheba - southern israel) which was a square mile administrative outpost which purpose was communicating with three large local bedouin tribes that met here. The city today is third or fourth largest in Israel.

This is my contribution, not quite a cemetary but this is the war memorial for one small town in Cornwall. It is inscribed with Mens names on all four sides. Hundreds of them.

The only lesson we need to learn is never to forget.

Oakwood Cemetary, Troy NY

This cemetary is amazing. It was made in Victorian times by the founders of the Arrow Shirt Company. It has the nations first cematorium, and is considered one of the top 10 most haunted placed by many authorities on the matter. The Monuments are amazing, and were comissioned by the Victorian Elite class. There are ponds, and one side of the cemetary is on a hill that overlooks the Hudson River Valley. I even saw the grave of an former US Senator.

I found this grave and passed the photo to a friend in Pierce Co. (WA) Sheriff's dept. Turned out they didn't know he was buried down here in Tumwater, WA. An 8"x10" of it is now in their historical exhibit. :D

here are some from a recent trip to greenlawn cemetary (columbus ohio). it is HUGE, and has a lot of the old ohio heads of state buried there, as well as pillars in the community from way back (ie: the people all the streets are named after). it's very tranquil to stroll around the grounds.

unfortunately...these prints were scanned with arguably the worst scanner known (it's an all-in-one). it would only give me 100% 200dpi color jpegs (with HORRIBLE registration) of my small proof prints. anyhow...these don't do the prints justice, but they are the closest i could get to post (and i didn't want to miss this thread). so many great images here...and nice to know i'm not the only one that loves wandering around the graveyard! could someone recommend a good scanner that is inexpensive for use only to scan images for the web (flatbed)?!?!

all of them except the one with my wife are shot w/ a dark red filter (the one she is in uses a dark orange filter). the shot of the mausoleum is konica infrared...the others are tmax 100.

ok...crap. the limit is now 3 photos to upload?! hopefully this will be followed by 2 more.
