I love this type of photography. Old graveyards are fascinating. The graveyard near me is like that and they even have a pet graveyard which is old too.

Always such interesting info in these Hans. Did you know that if you take a sheet of heavyweight vellum or regular paper - you can rub the carbon of a pencil and get lettering that isn't usually visible to the naked eye?

Have a great week my friend!

We have a very old grave yard in Nottingham with some interesting information..it has a paupers section.. The Rock Cemetery is unlike most cemeteries. It’s unusual in that it’s built out of sandstone rock and looks very much like an old style Necropolis with caves. Catacombs were built into a larger cave but they were never used terraces were done by the unemployed poor in 1850's “Love is stronger than death even though it can't stop death from happening, but no matter how hard death tries it can't separate people from love. It can't take away our memories either. In the end, life is stronger than death.
