I saw a documentary recently on 'Oakwood Cemetery' what a fantastic place for sculpture, architecture, beautiful gardens and family crypts. Just loved it all!

Is that a present day picture? Because it looks antique. It's lovely and peaceful.

I haven't been there since just after we moved here, in 1970. I think I need to go poke around, don't you?

What a cool shot. The stark, bleak look just seems to fit.

The gates make me not want to go there.

I wonder if the dead are fenced in or the living, out.

Pamela said...

I agree with Pamela. Where's the hurry!

Definitely sets the mood. I've heard that Oakwood is worth visiting.

...and gates are like doors, they invoke a similar curiosity. Yup, I know I'm going the wrong way, but I want to catch up on all the photos I missed here. :)

Now I want to go visit there after reading all the comments. LOL! This is truly a great shot, the sepia adds a fine tuning to it. Erie, but very mysterious.
