Don't you just love old tombstones? We are going on vacation in a few weeks to a town that is over 125 years old and they have a very old cemetary. I'll take some photos of it while I'm there.Kay
The first photograph reminds me of Chris de Burgh's song Lonely Sky : "Lords and ladies lie in stone,Hand in hand from long ago,And though their hands are cold they'll love forever ...."
I love the art of gravestones, and I've never seen one with the colored in-lay. Is that a NZ thing? It's so awesome.
There is often a beauty in cemeteries and you have captured this in the pictures of the tombstones.
I love these tombstones - they are so beautiful!

What fascinating photographs! I particularly love the black and white one. The sky gives it a haunting quality. (No pun intended!) Great post - loved it!
What an interesting post! Tombstones -- now that I come to think of it, I took photos in an ancient cemetery in Armenia a couple of years ago. Just for fun I'll send you a couple via your email.Miss Footloosewww.lifeintheexpatlane.blogspot.com
We rented bicycles one day while visiting the Cotwolds in England. I photographed many tombstones in those very old cemeteries there. Unfortunately, it was before I owned a digital camera so they are in albums from the "Kodak Film" days.Your shots are great and I agree that the black and white has a haunting affect!
