My wife and I spent a week in Kentucky earlier this month and I have finally finished the initial batch of post processing. My first day there (while she was attending a work related training) was spent at Lexington Cemetery, the most interesting cemetery I have ever seen. From the 120 foot memorial to Henry Clay to the most modest marker that place is awash in history.

I found markers for veterans from both sides of the civil war, from generals down to privates.

Most of the foliage was ending but there were still some trees putting on a good display.

There is a sinkhole that predates the cemetery within the grounds. It is all overgrown, but after working my way down inside I found there were several tombs set into the side of the slope in this unmaintained area.

Thanks for looking,
Tim

OK, just one more I would like to share. On our last day in KY I took my wife to the cemetery so she could see it. She only had a couple of hours but she took a number of shots that I am completely jealous of. Somehow she just naturally sees good composition better than I do. Of course, she still randomly plays with the "wheel thingy" so I guess we are even.

Very nice shots! At least your wife uses the "wheel thingy" - my other half has sorted out the on/off switch and the shutter. He thinks twisting the zoom on the lens is the best thing in photography and is not really aware that the 'wheel thingy' does anything. And a couple of my favorite pictures from Yellowstone were his, too.

i like those, especialy the black and white, i personly think all cemetry pics should be in b&w as it makes them look more dramatic.

although theres so much colour in that cemetry i can see why you didnt.

the one with the flag really catchesmy eye, well done your wife

Yours are nice, but pass my compliments to your wife (or don't, if you want to keep some prestige at home :blah

When I had just met my wifeI lent her my camera and gave her a few rolls of film, and told her to go out and play. She had never held a SLR camera before, and knew nothing about aperture, exposureand such, so I put itin program mode and told her to just point, focus and shoot. She came back home, we developed her films in the darkroom and... the first frame on the first film was a portrait of her best friend, which then hung on our wall for yearstill it was so bleached you couldn't see who it portrayed. The darn best portrait I have never shot...:evil:.
