Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Tombstones or Cemeteries

Woodgrange Park Cemetery

First of all I will take you to Woodgrange cemetery where our family grave was. My grandfather was the last to be buried in the grave which he filled, being the 6th person in the grave. I have a photo of the grave, but black and white and not very good quality. Today the cemetery exists, but only with some old and neglected stones. Otherwise most of the graves, including ours, were removed with machines. Another part of the cemetery has been converted to a muslim cemetery. Somehow everything passes.


Ricardo

I stumbled upon this grave in the Montparnasse cemetery in Paris (yes, I am a grave tourist). Ricardo Menon was an young assistant to Niki de St. Phalle, an artist and she designed his grave.

Carlo Abarth was a car designer who is quite well known amongst the car fans. I found his grave in Vienna in the central cemetery. I did not know who he was, Mr. Swiss explained, but I found his grave something special.

I now have to come to a stop, I have too many graveyard photos.

  1. If there’s one thing we think has got to be “forever,” it’s our grave. And yet I hear that many have been eliminated. Too many dead people, not enough room. It makes perfect sense, but it is pretty creepy. I suppose unless we are kings or Very Important People, time will wipe us all away in the end. Hmm. There’s a story there. Many stories.

  2. What unusual graves. I plan on being cremated. I’ve seen too many sad graves that nobody visits and there will be nobody to visit mine after I’m gone except my sister and she is only a little younger than me. I’d rather be scattered somewhere I love. I have read of natural cemeteries where you are planted in bushland. I probably would not mind that either.

    • We have a natural cemetery in our area, but here it is an expensive solution. My family were all traditionalists with graves and stones. Not us, a simple cremation and let the wind do the rest.
