Wandering Through Cemeteries

Rows of graves at Pere Lachais cemetery in Paris

Yes – I know the obvious choice for a Halloween post is cemeteries – but I don’t actually find cemeteries creepy or scary.  Instead I find them intriguing, and they are one of my favorite things to photograph.  I think a cemetery can tell you about a culture and history of an area.  For this reason I often seek out cemeteries to visit as I travel.  Here’s a collection of some recent cemeteries I visited over the past few years.  Big, small, old, strict, superstitious  breathtaking, moving, and historical.  Take a walk through my favorite cemeteries if you dare…and tell me which one is your favorite in the comments!
