I'm a sucker for cemeteries...thanks for this gem!
Has someone been to Trinity Church lately?
I love cemeteries. Great shot!
Beautiful. And I've just been poking around in ancestral records - unsuccessfully so far.
Wow, now THAT's an oldie but a goodie. Great stuff!
What a beautiful gravestone if there is such a thing. the writing is amazing..
Great shot D.This so reminds me of the opening credits onthe old PBS MYSTERY.
I love the abbreviated version of those words, like daughter and another word - body? I've already forgotten. Love the color--or lack there of--which is so appropriate for the topic.wv: tizedosi. Tizedosi of words on that headstone, but it's absolutely gorgeous.
Oh! Forgot to mention - tell Toonman the Washington Post is running a contest for cartoonists, and the winner gets to be published in the paper for a month or so i think -plus Gary trudeau and others will critique his work. If you google Washington Post cartoon contest I'm sure something will come up, or just go to the on-line version.
One would love to see some authorities taking care of this amazing mean to measure time and memory.Please have a wonderful Wednesday.daily athens
I love cemeteries too. those old headstones can tell some wonderul stories, often sad, wonderful stories...a great photo.
Poor Sarah.Lovely photograph!
ToonMan - go for it!!
Very beautiful and poignant.
Needs no caption - like Ray! :)Aloha from HawaiiComfort Spiral
Love this one. As always...
Need more details on this marker D. Love the picture!
this looks beautiful and ancient, a perfect combination in my mind.
Very mysterious with the edges s worn that some of the numbers are missing. Hard to tell her age when she expired.
I love old cemetaries. The gravestones have such character. This is quite the epitaph. The listing of the famlial relationships is interesting. My history professor once said until about the 1930s children weren't named until they were two because they might die. So I like to look at the children's graves, although it's sad, to prove this theory. It holds pretty good. Also I like to see what was written. Usually something like baby boy Johnson. The anonymity makes it that much sadder when you think about it.
Cool photo, and great find among the gravestones at Trinity Church. I remember going there a few times as a kid (though I can't remember particular gravestones).
It has that classic, solemn cemetery look. Great shot!My WW entry is here.
Beautiful shot. That stone looks so old. Someone's daughter, rather than wife or mother, I wonder how old she was and what her story was...
My mom loves her local cemetary. She takes pics all the time. That stone is amazing and wonder how long its been there? Great shot. Happy WW!
Beautiful gravestone. I also like pictures taken in cemeteries.I am a new follower. I smiled with your "Say gruyère" imagining the different position of people's lips and hoping you get them at the right time!!!;)I am French you see and I love cheese goes without saying!I also dream of visiting NY, your place is an excellent start.Have a fantastic day. xxx
Great classic shot. Happy Wednesday!
I love cemetery shots too. Very nice, very sad.
Remarkable find, Daryl!I HAVE to visit N.Y soon ;)xo Anna
Beautiful old school headstone.
time has pounded away at the headstone yet somehow that only adds to its dignity
Love the picture
That's an old one. We found some just like that when we visited Stratford on Avon.
Thanks for visiting me... I thought my comments were connected to my blog...This is a great shot - love the Gothic writing.
What elegant lettering on the tombstones.
what a unique picture...and a unique gravestone! I like it!
Interesting shot - thanks for sharing it!!
You want to know what first came to mind when I saw the photo? The Haunted Mansion at Disney World Magic Kingdom! Giggle!!!
Now you know part of their family tree.
~words need not be spoken for this photo...gone but not forgotten...i only wish our cemeteries had headstones are beautiful as these...most all ours lay flat in the ground...warm wishes and brightest blessings
I'm a total sucker for really old head stones. I really love doing rubbings, then frame them. Awesome art and amazing picture!
Norwalk? The contrasts are so sharp. The clean lines have me thinking this person passed not so long ago. And yet....Great stuff, Daryl.
Great blog. Thanks for stopping by mine.
