Cemeteries

As creepy as it sounds, I love to spend time in and photograph cemeteries. Especially the older ones like Cypress Hills and Calvary, where there is an enormous variety of headstones and mausoleums. Some headstones have old black and white photos of the deceased embedded in them. Some mausoleums have stained glass that is almost completely intact. You can encounter graves going back to the early 1800s. The state of the graves can vary from pristine to completely decrepit. Similar to my fascination with urban decay you can feel the history and see how time and nature reclaims everything.
