grave interests

memorial day is a day to remember soldiers we've lost in battle. a day to remember family members in the service. or just a day to remember dead friends and family.

this past memorial day my dad and i decided going on a little graveyard crawl would be fun. yes, fun. one of my creepy interests is exploring graveyards.  it's such a beautiful tradition, honouring the dead with plaques, stones, buildings, flowers. i give props to the first person who thought burial grounds were a good idea. graveyards are beautiful-and the older they are, the better. here are a few shots of our little adventure.
