Photography – macabre and beautiful all at once!

If you think that macabre can be beautiful, too, please view my photographic adventures – all that are cemeteries, graveyards, creepy dolls and abandonment / urban exploration. Of these various explorations, I am most drawn to the exploration of cemeteries and graveyards – they are full of history, amazing art, mystery, and stories. Stories of individuals and communities of those who are laid to rest there. My cemetery explorations have evolved from wanting to get that most creative photo, to also just documenting unique finds and doing research on those that I visit.

Bill Waters Haiku

Bill is a friend and colleague who had chosen some of my photos to write his haiku.
To me reading his work gives me a feeling of peace and is thought provoking. And they often bring on a smile. Please visit his page often, and also view his January 14, 2015 post featuring one of my photos. Here is another:
