Cemetery–Zach’s Weekly Snaps [PHOTOS]

Zach Effrog, Big Frog 104, Townsquare Media

Some people find cemeteries to be a scary place. Me? I find them to be far from scary, but rather a place filled with art. There's beautiful statues, wonderful carvings and many, many more visuals to look at. Yes, people are buried there, but if you can get past that and look at a cemetery as an artistic journey, you'll find many picturesque things. In my travels, I stopped and walked around the Forest Hill Cemetery in Utica right before the sun went down. Today, I would like to share with you my photographic walk through the cemetery. This week's theme–The Cemetery.


Sunset

 
 

We'll begin with my favorite snap from my walk though the cemetery. I can't really explain why I like this one so much. I just look at it and really, really like it. It's probably because of the angle of the sun hitting the memorial. It looks beautiful.

Stairs

 
 

Here's a snap looking up at a memorial from the bottom of the steps leading to it. I think the angle and colors are pretty cool in this shot.

Flower

 
 

Here is a flower on a very intricate gravestone.

Mausoleum Doors

 
 

This lion is what you first see at the glass doors of a family's mausoleum in the cemetery.

Stairway

 
 

I found another set of stairs that looked interesting while on my walk. I really liked the color of these steps, especially with the moss growing on them. Also, the sun was just starting to dip below the trees, so the lighting was nice, too.

"Thinking"

 
 

This is the only photo that was not taken at Forest Hill Cemetery. It was taken at a cemetery in Sherrill, NY, although, I'm sure at which exact cemetery. I really like this picture. I think it captures the act of thinking or pondering something perfectly.
