The Four Mausoleums of Fairview Cemetery

I haven’t posted in a little while because I’m trying to put the finishing touches on my website redesign.  It’s an amateur attempt and probably a future blog topic just as it was a couple years ago.  Until then, I have a few images from the couple days I spent in a cemetery working on HDR photography and my fear of them.  Cemeteries that is, not HDR.  One particular set of buildings really captured my imagination.  It was the cemetery’s four mausoleums.  I’m not sure why I was so enamored by them.  I would guess the fact they look like homes on the outside is one reason.  Another would be, as an Ohioan, I don’t see too many above ground burials.  Almost all of ours are below.  I can’t seem to put my finger on why exactly, but it kept me there with them for a couple hours.

I’m pretty sure my dance with the cemetery is now complete.  I’ve spent more time in it, photographing it and blogging about it then I intended to this summer.  In hindsight it seems a little dark, a little morbid.  Maybe that’s just me though, I don’t know.

Thank you for visiting.  I hope you enjoyed your stay.

Until next time, please take care of yourselves!
