I love cemeteries

 

Me too. It feels very peaceful and quiet. Good place to be when i want to be outdoors and alone, and escape the city life style for a brief time.

It cannot be seen. Cannot be felt.

Cannot be heard. Cannot be smelt.

It lies behind stars and under hills.

And empty holes it fills.

It comes first and follows after.

Ends life. Kills laughter.

As seen in the first pic, no.

Yes same cemetery, different sections. In the last 2 pics there are just slight differences but hard to see from that angle.

probably one of those cemeteries with all kinds of restrictions.  they wouldn't all be that similar by coincidence.  i really don't get why some cemeteries do that; it never makes them look any better.  the first picture looks like a beautiful place to visit your dead loved ones, while the others are more like the cemetery version of those housing developments where every house looks the same except for some minor detail here or there.

 

i kind of understand the cemeteries that say you can only have the in-ground stones; obviously the convenience of mowing is just way more important than people's dead family members.  i don't agree, but i get it.  what i really don't get is the places that say things like you can't put flowers on a grave, or something completely innocuous like that.  i don't even see what they're trying to accomplish here.  same with a cemetery that seems to have pretty strict dimensional requirements for new graves.

 

 

for the record, i'm not knocking your pictures at all.  it's still a pretty view, it just put my mind on another tangent.

​Portland Oregon yesterday. We got hit with a foot of snow, which very rarely happens in Portland.

Nice winter photos all. :)
