For today’s POTD I want to share some fence shots I also took at the cemetery. I have always loved ornate fence and iron work, unless it gets gaudy.. When ever I find a fence that I think is pretty or has unique lines I end up shooting it. Here are a few from Saturday, also at Hollywood Cemetery. These are SOOC with a light vignette applied.
Took myself out on a Photo walk this weekend to Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond.
For those who may not have seen my photo’s taken last year, Hollywood Cemetery was open in 1849 and is the burial place of two Presidents (Tyler and Monroe) as well as over 25 Civil War Generals including Jefferson Davis, George Pickett and J.E.B. Stuart. It is also has over 18,0000 Confederate Army soldiers buried there. The cemetery is still an active cemetery, meaning burials still take place. As a matter of fact, they were preparing for a funeral while I was there.
Although it sounds weird to take pictures in a cemetery this is one of my favorite places in Richmond. the grounds are gorgeous, the architecture amazing and the view overlooking the James River is breathtaking.
Here are some of my favorite shots from Saturday, the rest are located on my Flick’r site (link above) if you wish to see them.
