Friday Fences, The Cemetery Gate

Loved ones used to be buried in places like this...upon a tree-shaded hill
 behind an ornate gate and with monuments inscribed with scripture.

I like the character of older cemeteries. Nice shot.

I'm intrigued by your commentary. They no longer are?

Hilda, it is rare to see an ornate gate or monument in a modern cemetery these days. Most of the graves are "cookie cutter" with all the graves looking alike. However, there are still a few people buried in these older graveyards. Thanks for visiting!

Very pretty entrance.

Just beautiful! I love how the gate is iron, then the gatepost area brick, then back to iron.

These are fairly spacious grounds with an artistic entrance. Doesn't look very crowded. I could tell a bad joke but I won't.
