It's amazing how much money some people put into their cemetery markers.   Here in California, cremation seems to have become  more popular than burial.

That's no different here. This is a historical graveyard.

Gotcha.  Well, like you, I've spent time wandering around old cemeteries.  There are some amazing things to see and they are often very thought inspiring.

Definitely need to move to happier stuff but I must say #1 is really really nice capture. The perspective and color ( or lack of it) is perfect.👏
