Brighton Cemetery

Hi V ... we went for a stroll through Brighton Cemetery yesterday.  It was really quite interesting.
With our map in hand we set off to find some of the more notable characters buried there.  We had
some success but others were more difficult to find.  While on our search we passed the fellow above.
With a nod of his hat he smiled and said "nobody bothers me here".  J.

  3. Oh poor old thing, you wonder if he's simply trying to get a bit of peace, or whether he's visiting his loved one. He certainly has style with his brilliant blue shirt and his hat! Lovely shot Joe.

  6. PS: My grandfather always used to tell me "Don't be afraid of dead people, it's the living ones you have to be scared of!"

  8. I think he probably wants to be alone and appreciates the quiet of the cemetery.

  11. A cemetery is like a library, the internet, and Foxtel. Full of history, landscapes, flora, fauna, religion. And without the hustle and bustle ... what more could one ask for?

    Really love the depth of field in this one, Joe.

  12. Fantastic picture and what a wise old man. 'When I find the living a bore, there's a place I can go. I answer the call go over the wall where the crosses are allin a row' - Voltaire.
