PhotoHunter: In Memory

This week’s PhotoHunt Theme is “In Memory”. Since I have posted a few blogs lately in the more serious vein about personal loses and keeping the memory alive of certain loses, I decided to go in a more “photographic only” direction.

I have a particular fascination with abandoned buildings as well as cemeteries. If I can find an abandoned cemetery… so much the better!

Here are a few particular favorites, including a brand new (as in just found) cemetery.

The Cardinal Cemetery was relocated during the building of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Other cemeteries lie drowned under the waters.

    Those are some of the most interesting I’ve seen and am now musing how cool it would have been to have Patience and Experience resting side by side…

    I’m sorry about your personal losses… those can be difficult to overcome in many cases. Take care 🙂

      Thanks. This cemetery had a number of these wonderful names.

    Great shots. I love old graveyards, especially when the stones are weathered and covered in lichen or ivy. Happy weekend

      Orange seems to be the most common colour besides sort of grey-blue.
