Found this beautiful monument and story at Woodlawn in the Bronx, NY (thanks to geocaching.com for leading me there). Shots taken with a P&S but I can't get over the power of the monument.

Hi there afkenner. Thanks for posting. Wow, I hope this isn't innappropriate, but that statue is hot! So feminine and sexy...and yet sad at the same time! Kind of reminds me of some of the works in the Richelieu and Denon wings of the Louvre...

Here is one from me.

Ooo! Like that first shot! Lovely lighting! The church looks over-saturated on my screen, but I'm at school, so can't tell if it's the screen. As to #3....."BIG" springs to mind!

Great shots, and keep 'em coming!
:D

Three more. First two are the gravestones of thoroughbred horses in Ward Acres, New Rochelle, NY. For a period in its history, this property was a horse farm that trained some winners and buried 'em on site when they passed.

Third one is on Guino Creek in Mamaroneck, NY. Just shot this afternoon, this beautiful home has a creekside cemetery in the backyard.

Don't worry about it! :D That's part of the fun in posting....getting others to point out what we might have missed.

Whoa! Excellent stuff! I really like the horse-tombs! Kinda surreal, but sweet all the same.

btw, if you could reduce your upload size a little, it would help members see all the picture on one screen. Sometimes I go big, but usually try to keep the long side to around 650 ~ 750 pixels.
:D

Gosh. That first one is really amazing. The flags look so unified, yet being at all angles, it's as if the dead are pulling at the foundations of patriotism.
Excellent image!

:lol:

So true my friend! And a reason all on it's own to start this thread....let's deal with the dead in a POTN way = take their pictures!
:D

Hey Mike, no need for an apology. Sometimes I have a lovely widescreen to view on, sometimes I don't. And I expect a fair few POTN members are the same.

Meanwhile, love the shot.

Have you noticed how cemeteries somehow lend themselves to B&W?
Interesting isn't it.
And....here's a little nugget for you all:
In Japan, B&W photos are not generally accepted/appeciated because they are seen as being without life.

Here's one from a local church:

Interesting how the stones are all so "drunk"....I suppose it's due to the soil shrinking underneath as the earth re-settles. Euugh!

Hi Bunny. I like that a lot. Almost made me feel cold, just looking at the pic!
Keep 'em coming.

I'm going to try to sneak out of school soon to snap at some markers out the back.....catch you guys later....
