Are its beautiful cemeteries. Recently I visited two: cimetière Montparnasse and cimetière Montmartre. Click on any photo to see them in slide show format.

Children’s Grave   3 comments

Heartbreaking to think that these parents buried 4 children, aged from infant to 4 years old. Life expectancy of babies at that time was pretty low – some families didn’t bother to name a baby until it had reached its first birthday!

Revolutionary War Heroes   Leave a comment

I came across a few graves of revolutionary war veterans in this cemetery in Stowe, Vermont. One died at age 80, 180 years ago, after fighting a war 240 years ago. Amazing that their gravestones have survived the Vermont weather this long.

More shots, this time in color, from the Madison cemetery, featuring many graves of Civil War soldiers. I posted some black&white pictures from here in an earlier post.

Madison Cemetery   2 comments

This cemetery, started in 1691, has many old, beautifully-worn tombstones from the 1700 and 1800’s. Decided to experiment with my new ultra-wide lens to try some close-up angles and some wide angles.
