Took the boys out to grab some shots at Bonaventure cemetary this afternoon. What a gorgeous place! Even though people rave about the monuments, sorry... They run second IMO to the natural beauty of the place. The trees are huge, and some grow in the most ODD positions. The moss hangs for feet and feet from the trees, there are rose bushes and Rose of Sharon trees, camillias, azealas (which are not in bloom yet) and many more.

On top of that, the whole place backs right up to the river.

Here are some of the Stone Faces of Bonaventure.

Wonderful shots, Tracy!

You gave us a real feel for the Bonaventure Cemetary. It looks like you have some wonderful weather as well. That certainly adds to the photo opportunity aspect. I really like the soft lighting in your photos.

Thanlks for sharing the experience with us.

MT

Nice shots Tracy, are these statues all there in memory of someone, or just add to the hardscape of the cemetary?

TY MT. for the comment/compliment. Pictures should tell a story whenever possible is my belief(my 2 cents anyway)

Silver- All the statuary in Bonaventure are on the actual plots themselves, which is why out of respect for the families I did not get any close-ups of tomb names.

Bonaventure cemetary in it's oldest part boasts tombs and plots more than 200 years old. Conrad Aiken the famous author and Johnny Mercer the singer are both buried here, as well as a host of others who were Savannah residents. The old (150+ years) tombs and plots sometimes have 10 or more gravestones in them, providing a resting place for entire families and multiple generations.

Pretty fascinating stuff.



Thanks for asking,

Tracy
