Saturday's PhotoHunting: Graveyards

To be honest, I'm not really big on visiting graveyards or cemeteries, because I tend to spook easy. 

However, when I visited Prague in 2006 I summoned up the courage to visit the Old Jewish Cemetery because of the history behind it.  It was so sad to see the headstones and to know why they were here in this way and why.  It is an experience that I will never forget.   

Visitors are not allowed to take photographs and I respected that rule, so this is the only photo I took to capture the experience.  I blogged about it here. It is a photo that I took just outside of the cemetery which is on the other side of the wall to the right. 

I took this next photo of the Glasgow Necropolis in Scotland.  Although I did not visit the graveyard, I snapped this photo from a distance looking out of a window from the St. Mungo Museum. If you look closely, you can see the really large headstones, which this graveyard is known for having.

  7. Hi everyone, thanks so much for your comments and for liking my photos.

    Gattina, I like to visit cemeteries for historical purposes too as well as to pay my respect. But I'm usually in and out in a flash. Let's just say it took me years to summon up the courage to watch the movie the Sixth Sense. :)

    Sue, Prague & Scotland are wonderful places to visit. I could visit there again and again.

    Annie, there is so much history in both Prague and Scotland. I'm glad that you liked my photos. Have a great weekend too.

    Luna, the architecture is pretty amazing in Prague and Scotland. I wish I could go back to take more photos. :)

    Thanks again everyone. Much appreciated. Have a wonderful weekend.
