Graveyard and Clean/Saturday Photo-Hunt


Did I tell you that I love graveyards (but hate funerals)?  It's not because they're spooky, or I am morbid.  I guess it's my latent sentimentality.  Graveyards are more interesting and telling than museums...graveyards also give me a sense of peace.

And one of the cleanest and greenest graveyards I have ever been to is the Manila American Cemetery and Memorial in Global City.  The lawns are perpetually manicured, the trees are trimmed--a beautiful resting place, a perfect place to reflect and breath in clean air.


This cemetery occupies 152 acres on a prominent plateau.  It contains the largest number of graves of US military who died in World War II, a total of 17,201.

That's a lovely place to 'rest'. It's like a park which I won't mind visiting again and again.

I too love to walk through graveyards [and dislike funerals]. The one you shared with us today is absolutely beautiful and filled with the serenity they should be. Oh and the wind turbines...perfect for clean air. Fabulous post.

I never thought of grave-yard being morbid or spooky...I saw this thing on grave-yard and actual it was a popular place to go and have a picnic and children where flying there kites.
Mine is up and the coffee is on.

i live so close to the American Cemetery but I haven't gone in. Can anyone just go and visit and have a look around?

Your photos are beautiful, it looks so peaceful and serene. Thank you for sharing.

To answer your comment on my photo of the "angel" It is the same one that was in "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" I was in Savannah, Georgia where that took place, I also have a photo of the house, where it all happened.
Thank you for stopping by. Happy weekend.

Hmmm... I like graveyards but *good* museums can be far more informative I reckon! ;b

Hi Luna, have you seen Julie's Taphophile Tragics Meme. Sounds like it would be perfect for you. A google search should lead you to it easily. I have linked to it with some of mt graveyard discoveries myself. J.

i have this sense of sadness when i see one.
but this is undoubtedly some great shots you've captured.

Love those windmills. We're having some built in Ontario but there is a lot of outcry from folks who say they are making them sick. Shame because they are such a passive form of energy producer.
