Cedar Hill Crosses



This is another image from Cedar Hill Cemetery.  I don't think these crosses mark the graves of well known people.  I just liked the pattern of crosses marching down the hillside, with the lady's statue and a couple of obelisks behind them.  This post is linked to Taphophile Tragics.

Nice composition Jack.

One family? I wonder about the design and how it is associated with the deceased?

SRQ said...

Yes...visually appealing. Note to self: I would prefer not to have a statue of a sitting lady atop my grave.

I also wonder about crosses in the foreground. I assume it must be a Greek Orthodox or Russian Orthodox family, based on the shape of the crosses.

Very interesting headstones.

Fantastic pictures. Are the gravestones all from the same family?

Great shot as always and wonderful composition! The four crosses are interesting, makes me curious about the history! I, too, will decline a woman seated on my grave -- oh, right, that's why I'm planning on being cremated and scattered to winds!! Hope your week is going well, Jack!!

Cool shot jack! This looks like a well-maintained cemetery.

Very neat and orderly, I like the repeated pattern.

That is a really nice pattern.

Very nice picture, Jack. I, too, like the composition.

Ancient design in a new iteration. The weathered versions in Ireland have more romance.

That looks great.

I agree: it is a fascinating formation!
