A Foggy Cemetery - The Dainty Squid

A Foggy Cemetery

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Like I mentioned in yesterday's photo an hour post, on our way to Kane, PA to meet up with Ivan and Elycia for our weekend camping adventure we found a beautiful cemetery. I'm always ready to explore an old cemetery but mixed with the morning's beautiful fog, we HAD to pull over and spend some time exploring. It was gorgeous...
I love these photos so much! I really wish we could have stayed a little longer. We spent all of about fifteen minutes there. The place was massive, we barely covered a quarter of it! I was running from neat headstone to the next that caught my eye. I suppose next time we go camping we'll just have to leave even earlier to allow for any emergency cemetery exploring expeditions. ;)

All of the photos above were taken with a Canon T2 and Fuji 35mm Superia X-TRA 400 that expired in 2010.

  2. wow these pictures are beautiful! I love exploring graveyards, my family has a thing of walking around the ones in our village after we've had Christmas dinner - I don't really know how this started but it's become a bit of a tradition.

    I've never tried using expired film, but after looking at these pictures I think its a must!

  4. Just gorgeous shots, Kaylah! Perfection!
    I love strolling through cemeteries too - when travelling we stop in the big ones of the major cities we go to. There are so many amazing stories, headstones, sights to see in graveyards.... oh and usually cats too :)
    These are just so lovely! So glad you stopped there!

  6. They are so pretty! Looks a little like a cemetary here in Gothenburg that I love to walk around taking photos of.
    You have really captured the mood. Lovely!

  8. Ooh Kaylah, you would love the Necropolis in Glasgow! (U.K)
    It's a Victorian cemetery, super lush-green (Scotland! It rains)and often foggy because it's on a hill overlooking the entire city...

  9. Some of those photos are awesome. But that photo inside where it appears something is open..? Yeah, totally creepy.

  12. Hi Kaylah,

    I just wanted to tell you I absolutely love these pictures. The fog plus the headstones is simply gorgeous. I think my favorite is the third image. I want to walk around there right now! I too love cemeteries. Each is unique, serene, and just waiting to be discovered. Thanks for sharing, ma'am!

    Love,

  15. I love fancy cemeteries. We have one here in Nashville called Mt. Olivet - one of the tombs is built like a pyramid, complete with two sphinx guarding it!

  25. Sometimes I go to cemeteries just to sit and read and write. They've got nicely kept lawns and people don't shout in cemeteries. It's nice there just for the quiet. BTW I lovelovelove the fifth picture from the top.

  26. These are getting me in the mood for Halloween! I actually have a thing about walking in cemeteries. I feel like I am walking on top of people so it weirds me out. However, I think they are so cool and I would love to explore one like what you've visited. All the cemeteries in LA aren't as spooky/gorgeous like this.

  27. In the picture of the inside of the mausoleum is that one open!? Creepy! Beautiful cemetery though!

    ReplyDelete
  28. These are such pretty, spooky photos! I'm always terrified of angel statues in cemetaries, I blame Doctor Who...

  30. Great pictures -- love the mood.

    It's kinda creepy that in the mausoleum shot, one of the "slots" is open and you can see the casket inside!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ok, I can't believe no one has mentioned it yet, but how about that open crypt with the casket visible??? Creepy! Very nice pictures though :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh my goodness, these are so beautiful! What amazing atmospheric photos. I can't even imagine how wonderfully eerie it must have been to be there.

    I really love cemeteries. I used to live really nearby one so I took loads of photos in there. Oh, and I basically chose my uni because you had to walk through a cemetery to get there. That's not weird, right?

  33. Kane, PA?! Uhm, you seriously have no idea how close that is to me. Literally like the next town north of me, as in a couple minute drive. 0_0

    Anyway, haha, I love cemetery photos. Do you remeber the name of the town/where that cemetery is at? It looks very familiar and I've probably taken photos there myself, just can't remember.
