A year ago our building looked liked this. It was being renovated and full of banners for the companies doing the work.

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
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.
