I decided to venture over to the Lowell Cemetery this morning for a peaceful walk with my camera. I always manage to find some gems there and today I found some more. What I learned about the cemetery is that it is one of the oldest garden cemeteries in the nation (founded in 1841). I also learned that they give free tours, one of which will be held next Saturday. I will probably go because, well, I am curious!
Here are a couple of some unusual rooflines. The one on the left is the roof on a crypt. The crypyt itself is the color of milk chocolate which is unusual since most of the monuments and crypts are white and gray. This particular crypt is the final resting place for a doctor. Unfortunately, I don't remember the name. I need to bring my small notebook next time to write down important notes!
The photo to the right is the roof on a beautiful small chapel. The roof is slate with copper flashing and runoffs. I absolutely love the look of weathered copper roofs and this one is no different. There are quite a few houses with slate roofs here in Lowell.
I started out as a nature photographer but as time moved on, I got more and more interested in lines and shadows. I still enjoy nature photography, but I feel the great shots are more like lucky shots. Right place at the right time type of shots.
Kind of like the shot to the left. I just happened to look up and there he was, keeping an eye on me. On close inspection of the photo, these guys aren't pretty at all. But I suppose living in the side of a hill isn't the cleanest.
