Roslyn Cemeteries — 17 Comments

  1. You have reminded me of a gorgeous cemetery in the Twin Cities that I must visit to photograph! There are famous grave sites there such are MARS of the Mars candy fortune, and other famous entrepreneurs of the midwest….these are gorgeous patina-covered remembrances of lives past, Mary.

  2. I like to wander around the old cemeteries. Seeing the young children’s markers is always sad! Great series! Enjoy your day and the week ahead!

  3. I love old cemeteries, they speak volumes and are so fascinating. It’s also interesting when you see a family plot and then find an old landmark house in town with the same family’s name on it – it’s like watching the generations’ histories in fast-forward. So many of those old tombstone inscriptions and images are so moving. Thanks so much for posting this, I was so hoping you would!

  4. The construction of the graves on the hillside is interesting as are the headstones. My son and I visited an interesting cemetery in New Orleans that I wanted to photograph but he was getting creeped out.

    • I thought the graves were different too. I don’t know why they are built like that. Maybe because it’s on a hill, and the ground is soft and probably soggy.
