Cemetery Photographs in the Fall

Not as Macabre as one might think.

I am not able to name the cemeteries I photographed but know one is simply the gate from Yerkes Cemetery in Northville, Michigan. I believe the other two at the top of the crosses are from a cemetery somewhere around the Traverse City area in Michigan. All the others were taken in a cemetery in or around Calumet, Michigan.  Two of the figures looked terrible the last time I was up and took these shots.  Here’s an example from years before in black and white.

The End

“They’re coming to get you Barbara….they’re coming for you Barbara….they’re coming for you…LOOK, there comes one of them now!!!”

Fall is Fleeting

So hard to believe just another week until November!  Less than a month until Thanksgiving and the Holiday season begins.  Autumn is just not long enough.  Nothing is ever long enough when you love it so.  I sit through the cold winter to welcome spring and then swelter through summer until the welcome autumn chill cools it down again.

That being said, I didn’t forget Halloween.  Though I don’t celebrate it anymore, those around me still do and I still have many fond memories I will share very soon.

Prepare!  Gather your talismans & good luck charms or say your prayers, which ever you think will save you!

The Undeniable Beauty

A beautiful Maple tree stood just for me.

Luscious Autumn

The colors of fall help to awaken the senses to delightful aromas of hot apple cider, cocoa and pumpkin spice that surrounds you no matter how hard you try to escape it at this time of year.

Please enjoy the following fall photos.

Panoramic Photography

I’m sure you could crop regular photos to appear more panoramic but I used to have a cheap camera that did this.  It was so expensive to develop the photos I stopped using it & sold it at a yard sale.  Not to mention the practicality of this size picture.  The finished size, without enlargement, is approx 3″ x 10.”  I finally got around scanning these so I could post them.  I hope they upload in a manner that enhances this effect without much cropping.

Many people still get married in the Martha-Mary Chapel.

The remaining photos are of a trip my friend & I took to Wilcox Lake in Edward Hines Park located in Wayne County Michigan to get some reflective fall colors in the lake.  Please click on each photo to enlarge.

 

Daily Prompt: Tree

There are many different kinds of trees.  Family trees, shoe trees and actually two kinds of those now.  There are tree diagrams and also the kinds of trees that I think of right away when I see the word tree.

Coming soon to a woods near you!

Found out one of my Great Uncles was actually great in that he started a business and became Mayor of a town in Canada

Many years ago people spent most of their time outdoors. Supposedly there were way more miracles and prayers answered back in that time and it is my personal conviction that the trees helped spread the prayers where they needed to be heard across the lands. I believe we still have a lot to learn about these beautiful creations.
