A Walk Among The Tombstones

Carrying on with this walk through Woodlawn Cemetery, I kept taking pictures.

I'm not certain as to if this is a tombstone. If it is, the inscription is well worn away.

This tombstone has always caught my eye during visits.


  1. ...cemeteries are such peaceful places and during winter they can be more so. The angel with the snow is a wonderful sight.

  2. There are always a few gravestones that stand out amongst the others, I agree with Tom, looks so peaceful in the snow 💙

  3. That's a very fine angel. I'm always attracted to such gravestones which were quite the thing to have back in Victorian times.

  4. Hello, the statues and gravestones are lovely. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy week ahead!

  5. Nice shots again, the photo is beautiful. The snow gives the statue something extra.

  6. My high school was near a cemetery where my ancestors were buried. During lunch time, a group of us went to the cemetery sometimes to look around. We weren’t the only kids who did that too. Strange but true.

  7. I lived down the street from a cemetery in Boulder, and I would sometimes take a short run around the perimeter. Your place is quite peaceful.

  8. Fabulous Photos And Would Have Loved To See Some Black And White Action. Have A Wonderful Week And looking Forward To The Next Set Of Photos.


  9. That must be a very big cemetery.

  10. Beautiful statues and landscape ~ especially like the wandering path photo ~

  11. @Tom: definitely.

    @Grace: indeed.

    @Francisco: thanks.

    @John: me too.

    @Eileen: thanks!

    @Jan: it does, yes.

    @Marie: there was a cemetery near the high school I attended too.

    @DJan: that would be good exercise.

    @Padre: thank you.

    @Sharon: forty acres plus.

    @Carol: thank you.

  12. Yes, I agree, the snow gives a bit of a quiet time.
    I hope we don´t get any, though!

  13. I like walking in old cemeteries.
    In Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, Concord, MA, where love ones are buried, there is a gravestone, an actual stone that was fading when I was a child in the 1950s. I use to say hello when we drove by to let who is there know they are not forgotten even if the name is worn away.

  14. It doesn't look like you had much living company. Cemeteries are a good place for a sort of walking meditation.

  15. I've always appreciated such places. We have interesting ones in Hawaii too

  16. So many angels. So much care and devotion here.

  17. I love beautiful statuary in a cemetery. You don't see it often here.

  18. @Iris: snow is a good thing!

    @Maywyn: I like them too.

    @Kay: I saw a handful of people around during my walk.

    @Cloudia: they'd be a bit different, I expect.

    @Lady Fi: definitely.

    @Sandi: that's true.

    @Jeanie: this one has it. Beechwood and Notre Dame up in Ottawa too.

  19. I particularly like your second photograph …

    All the best Jan

  20. The cemetery looks quite beautiful in the snow:)
