    Graves, Gravestones, Headstones, Mausoleums, Crypts and other places and evidence of final rest.

    This theme suggestion brought to you by Yugoboy!

    Are gates or entrances to a graveyard fair game assuming you can tell that it is a graveyard.

    Don’t see why not. It would fall into “other places and evidence of final rest”, so as long as it was obviously a cemetery, I’d think it would be fair game.

    3 graveyards, 2 days, 316 shots, 36 possibles, 10 selected – impossible choice. I wouldn’t say that I fancy my chnces for a change, but I really can’t wait for this one…

    Yeah. When I proposed this one, I didn’t take into account the number of people interred in churches in Europe. It’s going to take significant effort to narrow down.

    Maybe I need a couple alts… 😈

    This is happening 4 days before it goes live, the idea of literally dancing on people’s graves makes me happy. I’ve shot a lot of stuff at Green Wood

    it’s an amazing place and by the 22nd the trees should be in full Fall colors. I am almost a quiver!

    that does indeed look like a good time.

    combine it with some halloween decorations and the occasional zombie and it would be perfect.

    I just realized I’ll be working early Wednesday. May I ask for an OBO?

    Not that I have my pictures picked out yet–this is a tough theme for me, but when I do… 😆

    Because of the fact that the people buried can’t give permission to have their photographs taken, I must outright condemn this theme as a whole. Shame upon all who participate in such atrociti–aw, whatever. I’ve got nothing this week, and the only graveyard nearby is the size of a driveway. Looks like I’ll be out another week.

    Check out the churches you just photographed. Many English churches have people buried in the floor and walls…

    I just got back from a small farmland cemetery. 20ish headstones. Is there anything cool in the small one by you?

    Thanks Kes; I’ll get you the link sometime today (or tonight, if I shoot something better).

    Unfortunately, no – they’re pretty plain. I’ve checked it out, looked around to see if I can set up some sunset/sunrise/starlight photos, anything really. Nada. Not a very photographic location. Might look into posting some church photos, but not sure if that’d fly as well with the voters.

    Is it OK to post photos from the catacombs in Paris? Actual bones are involved…
