Getting started with cemetery shots

Just when I first started thinking about getting more involved with the camera, the first shots I would take would be either my pets or….cemetery headstones.  I’ve taken these photos at Greenlawn Cemetery here in Columbus, Ohio and The Lakeview Cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio.   These photos were taken with my little Kodak Easyshare.  I spent the whole day roaming the grounds at Greenlawn.  For me, spirits were high.  The whole time spent there, I felt something around me.  Peaceful but something was there.  I spent Christmas Eve roaming the great land of The Lakeview Cemetery.  The headstones were huge, artful, spiritual, and famous.  I’ll be visiting these sites again and capturing many beautiful, mystical headstones with my Canon.  If you’re wondering about the photos, which cemetery they were taken, their symbolism, or the famous headstones that were taken, please ask.  I’d be happy to tell you what I know.  And if anyone would like to visit a cemetery along with me, you’re more than welcome.
