de los muertos
for today's and tomorrow's remembrances of our dear departed, i offer some shots snapped on a recent walk through mt.auburn cemetary, a resting place that seems more exalted than morbid, more curious than serious--perhaps, if you will, more monumental than grave.
at mt.auburn, i tend to seek figures and disfigures, incidental patterns and peculiar names rather than, say, the biggest ziggurats, remarkable lives, or famous folk--though there's no shortage of those. (and don't get me started on the trees.) at any rate, without further ado, i offer you a few.
you can view the full set here. (or go here for a slideshow.)
(and, in the "remarkable lives" category, don't miss the charles turner torrey subset.)
