Life of a Cemetery: Vol. 1

This is a project that I have always wanted to do. It might be a tad on the strange side for some, but for me, there is something very fascinating about the idea of the dead and how they are remembered. So I decided to go to Saint Marry’s Cemetery

Walking around a place that is designed to house the dead has a different feeling to it. Not a creepy horror movie feeling, but more of a surreal “I’m the only one here who’s alive” feeling.

These are just a few photos from the experience. The whole cemetery is so large that I will need at least a couple more trips so see the entire thing. So there will be more of these to come for sure.
