Why take photographs in cemeteries?  Everyone will probably have different answers while some do not take photographs at cemeteries, period. Wikipedia has an interesting article on the history about cemeteries, the sacred ground used and the ceremonies created for burial.

Every once in awhile I find myself wandering in a cemetery, reading names, checking dates and wondering about their lives. As a photographer, cemeteries present interesting lines, patterns, shapes and colors. On this past Worldwide Photo Walk our group spent some time in a older cemetery in Westerville. The mature trees made for some great background, as I have tried to present in this image. Strangely it was the tree I noticed first and then saw the statue, wanted them in an image. I added a small amount of flash to fill in the shadows of the statue.
