  2. This is a beautiful photo, angle and all. Is this the church that has a tree out front that was uprooted during some storm, and was turned into a 'sculpture'?

  3. Love how the tombstones are the same shape as the windows in the background.

    word verification: shapers. The tombstones are the same shapers as the church window.

  4. A symbol of the promise of eternal life, side by side with silent reminders of dusty death.

  7. Oh I love this shot! I didn't see any in New York, but when I took a walking tour of Boston I passes a graveyard mixed right into the city. I stopped and took a ton of pictures and just loved it!

  12. I've been to the Trinity church many times but have never seen the graveyard. Is it behind or to the side?

    I love the color of the moss. Perfect composition!

  15. Great perspective shot! The gravestones look like little comic depictions of ghosts! (Well, at least to me they do..)

  17. There is something atmospheric about this photo that breathes graveyard as well as shows the viewer the graveyard. It almost makes me want to glance over my shoulder.
