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.)

did you see the cemetery special on pbs? it was just a few nights ago. it was interesting but plain as well; just people sharing their thoughts, looking at graves, monuments, sculptures, and so on. you took some really great pictures, and they are much more interesting to look at than the pbs special, for real.

hey, thanks. glad you like 'em.

didn't see the pbs show. static shots of such things seem better than video. what's to watch in a statue?
