Laurel Hill Cemetery #16

By handlerstudio  

More individual and family graves....For me the lead wants to be color. Note the leaves on the upper left grave (best viewed large). Either the sandstone has colored the leaves to match the color of the stone....or they are actually carved into the stone as a trompe l'oeil detail. I did not try to brush them off, so I am not sure. Either way, pretty interesting.
It was a cloudy day....the shadows are all imaginary.

And a grateful thanks to Isabel (Chinga), the reigning master of version uploads, for her UA for my last set of photos, two days ago.

A lot of those would have lived through your Civil War. Some history there, Peter.

Great set Peter, I 'm also for the colour versions , I especially like V8 for the skillfully carved flowers .

"... lead wants to be color." I think you may have hit on why some manipulations work and others don't.
Those are really old crypts at the back. The front most seem to be more covering the grave than actually containing the remains. That used to be done to foil grave robbers.

I can't see there being anything to rob from my grave even if I had one.

I am amazed by the size of that carved boulder in v14 and 15 .
Did not see any engraving on that one ? Wonder where the oldest grave is in the USA ...back to the quakers ?
Cheers Walt
