Old Auburn Cemetery

Historic cemeteries make me wonder. How much land did they originally intend to utilize? What did the neighborhood look like when the cemetery was new? Do distant relatives visit regularly today?

Peaceful

Still and quiet. Although the train speeds by from time to time. And you can hear the hum of the bustling freeway.

The sound of birds chirping and fussing about draws your attention up to the tall old trees overhead but there’s also a few strays spread out on the grounds below.

    They did things with so much character back in those days, and I know it sounds creepy but I do like a wander occasionally through an old cemetery just to look at the sculptures and fine details. Lovely shadow shot of the bird, too 🙂
