I have a thing for old cemeteries. They feel sacred, peaceful and welcoming to me. I took these photos at one of my favorites – Grandview Cemetery in Portsmouth – a few years ago. I was involved in a lengthy relationship with a guy who used to live nearby and we sometimes walked in this cemetery. I loved it here. I haven’t been back to Portsmouth since we broke up over a year ago but imagine the cemetery looks like this right now.
There are a number of old graves here and interesting statuary. I always loved these two.
Great images, girl! I, also, love old churches and cemeteries. Believe me when I say that there a LOT of old cemeteries here in the deep south. Many of them are Civil War era and earlier. Lots of good stuff to shoot.
Thanks! One of these days I’m going to road trip through the south and look for some of those old churches and cemeteries!
