Sacred Fences 2

Brown Family Cemetery
137+ years old
Columbus Cemetery
Look how big this tree is!  My photo doesn't do it justice- it was beautiful.
I can only guess how old, but I would imagine 100+ years at least.

  17. If trees could talk. I always think of the history they have witnessed. B&W was perfect for these shots.

  18. Delightful pictures. Truly undying.

    But I always thought a fence was what you took when people insulted you. (Or is that offence?)

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

  20. The b&w is perfect for the subject. These old family burial places are such a piece of history, if only the tree could talk!!

  25. The first fence looks so fragile. But it must be strong, must have been there for many years. Great shots!

  26. Hi Terri, I LOVE old cemeteries... Several members of my family in past are buried in OLD Family Cemeteries... We tried to visit one once--but couldn't get in.. The good news was that that particular cemetery was in great shape and well-taken-care-of.... The other one I tried to visit hadn't been taken care of --and even though we could get in, we couldn't find any legible grave stones/markers... That was SAD seeing it like that...

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  29. Great cemetery! A beautiful place to rest.

  30. Oh, Sacred Fences; I always think the differences between western cemeteries and ours. And graves are made layered stone, which makes the place more scary I think :-) Great Peaceful place and big tree!

    Sending you Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

  37. These are great shots. I love old cemeteries. Some of my friends think I'm a bit off my rocker. I'm always searching for cemeteries that have angels in them. Stone ones, that is.

  38. Ah, a place to read the old tombstones and wonder about the lives of the people buried there.

  39. Beautiful B&W! I love that first shot particularly!
