Gates of Old Live Oak

Here's a sampling of the iron grillwork that can be found in Old Live Oak Cemetery. This gate stands at the entrance to the Jones family plot where the little lamb rests atop an infant's grave. Other larger, exquisite monuments are here too. Notice the ironworks company name and Philadelphia, Pa., location at top left.

Great picture!
I'll be absent for a while. Meanwhile, leave you with a somehow surprising post at Blogtrotter. Enjoy.
Wish you a great fortnight and see you by mid-February!

I like exporing cemeteries, most everything usually remains untouched since the person was buried.

Details like these bring life to a place of sadness.

That's a wonderful close up! Good angle and nice composition.
