Bonaventure Cemetery

Last summer I found myself in one of my favorite places: Savannah, Georgia. An amazing amount of the historic fabric of this old merchant city remains. I love to wander through the past and one of the places I made sure to visit was Bonaventure Cemetery. Made famous by the book and movie “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil”  the cemetery is amazingly atmospheric. With the Spanish moss, sandy lanes, and numerous impressive and disturbing memorials I could have wandered there all day. I didn’t see any ghosts but at night I’m sure memory takes foot.

I’m recycling these images for this post from a gallery I had on my Facebook account. Some recent posts by Lady Dandelion on her blog made me think of these and drag them out again.

      I’m glad you liked it. That was one of two cemeteries I visited on that trip. The second is actually a public park now which I found very refreshing. Something about the living carrying on in close proximity to those who are gone seems balanced.
