Lately, it seems like my boyfriend and I have been fascinated with cemeteries. I am not sure how it started or why, but we have been to a lot of cemeteries. And I have been taking a lot of photos at cemeteries.
I am particularly fascinated by cemeteries in strange places. This cemetery we found while looking for another cemetery. It is in Lancaster County's Central Park, right on the outside of the golf course. Just several very old graves in a wooded area. Many of the headstones are falling over.
This little area with graves is just off to the side of an off-ramp. I must have driven by it 100's of times until one day I noticed it.
I guess it isn't really that odd how the cemeteries ended up in these places. People bury their family on their property and then the area is developed. I am just glad that people were respectful to the graves.
Don't be surprised to see lots of cemetery photos in my photography scrabble pendant line! I certainly take a lot of photos at cemeteries and think that headstones have their own special beauty. There are a few in my latest photography photo line, and there will be more in my next run of them, too. I am currently working on a coaster set with them that is turning out just beautifully.
