It is a strange passion: graveyards. They are among my favorite tourist attractions. Here are some photos of my favorites for the BlogFlash2012 post. Visual primarily rather than words, primarily.
Or written my version beyond a poem or two.
This is a grave of two John Alsheimers - both died in 1918 within months of each other. A baby and a grown man. What was the relationship? Father and son? Grandfather and son? How did the elder John die? Where is Mrs. Alsheimer?
Louisa May Alcott (and family)
She is a Civil War Veteran (she was a nurse) so she has special honors by her simple headstone marked LMA.
Hollywoodland Forever, Los Angeles
I think once you have someone close to you die and you honor their life and death, the way cemeteries feel changes.
I hope you enjoyed this short tour!
(I think I might blog more of my cemetery photos more regularly!)
This blog post was inspired by the prompt "graveyard" from Blog Flash2012. 30 Days, 30 Prompts.
