    Twisted Cemetary

    I have done photodocumentation of many places where the dead are laid to rest. Some of my favorite photos were taken at Angel Ridge cemetary right after it was hit by a twister....there were headstones flung around and trees down.

    All Of Us

     Neptune in Aquarius Nov 27, 1998 to Apr 4, 2011   Neptune, the planet of dreams, is only partially comfortable in Aquarius. Neptune appreciates the global view of this sign, but prefers direct experience to Aquarian theories. The down side of this can be distorted...

    A Visit To One Today

    I went to a graveyard today. To see my sister there. The very atmosphere of that place is calming. We bought rose petals and rose water from the florist there... these are typical items available there. And incense sticks too.  But we didn't buy it. We went there to her...

    Graveyards Overseas

    Paris has a huge downtown cemetary, many famous people. In Naples Italy, the largest cemetary at Capodichino is broken into several separate sections as well as many different buildings, masoleums, and crypts. Caruso's tomb is there. Outside Cairo Egypt is the city of the dead...

    Magical

    They are beautiful and ethereal. They alow you to think and walk on your own. The most amazing ones I've been to have been the war graveyards in Belgium. They poigant and magical, especially when we went to the one which held people from our own little town.

    Creepy But Interesting

    I just like to look at the dates on headstones. I try and imagine what they could have died from especially if they had a short life. It's so interesting but you are walking on dead human bodies which makes kinda "ooooweeeeooo." lol I also find graveyards strangely...

    The Older the Better......

    I love the atmosphere of quiet peacefulness.  I love to walk among the older sections where the headstones are worn by time and the elements and the tall old trees cast their shadows over the graves.  Near where I grew up there was a very old, small cemetery within...

    Peace

    They are always so clean and peaceful. Everyone tries to be respectful in a graveyard. It makes for a very pleasant atmosphere. There is always a lot of character in the grounds, the stones, the epitaphs, the paths, people's offerings. I like graveyards because they are wonderful...

    A Glimpse.

    I have always adored walking through graveyards. Especially very old ones. I have a strange fascination with epitaphs and the really ornate tombstones. Its almost as if someone's entire existance gets summed up in a small arrangement of words...left there for everyone to see. To...

    Never Dull

    I have always found them incredibly atmospheric and interesting places to be, especially old ones. Mind you, on what people thought was a morbid excursion, on a visit to Paris last year, to a huge cemetery packed with famous people, I discovered virtually nobody, as I did not...

    Peaceful Resting Place

    A graveyard is not a bad place. It's a place of rest. Peaceful. Quiet. Serene. I don't know why people are afraid of them. There only scary in your horror movie imagination. The dead can't hurt you. It's the live ones you wanna watch out for.

    I'm Strange Like That

    I can walk through a graveyard and just feel all kinds of empathy and compassion for people I have never met. It's kind of a familiar place to me.

    Rest In Peace- More Than a Slogan

    There is nae a place tha I feel more at peace than in a Graveyard. There are times I feel the spirits o those tha hae gone to the Otherworld, and it is a secure feeling, for there is little more than a bag of flesh and bone that seperates me fra them. Dinnae laugh tis the same...

    They're Calming.

    I don't know why, but I feel so at ease in a graveyard. Thinking back now, but it seems there was a graveyard behind, next to or just across the road from all the schools I've been to... Maybe that's why I'm so comfortable in them... I've been so close to them all my life...

    Graveyards are such relaxing places

    for me. I love to hangout at graveyards alone and just be one with myself. Instead of looking at graveyards as mournful places, I see them as restful and spiritual places. Honestly, it feels like graveyards are safest place to be for me. - LibraAndAries
