Journey of a body on this earth


Spooktakular Challenge!

BOO!!!    Scared yet?    Okay so that wasn’t my best scary voice.  😛

The image below is part of Eddie Mooney’s Spooktakular Challenge in honor of “All Saints Eve” or “Halloween”.  This image is from a series I took at a local cemetery in Oakland, California with my camera club a few weeks ago.  Can you believe this incredible crypt?   I’m amazed that people spend so much money on a place to be buried.

The image was lightly processed in Lightroom only.  I was lucky to be there at the right time for the light to be casting such an ominous shadow over the building.  BWAHAHAHA!

If you get a chance, check out Eddie’s blog here for all the Spooktakular images!

Happy Halloween everyone!





Halloween is almost upon us, so I thought I’d share another scary photo from the Mountain View Cemetery.  It’s really fun making a mood out of a photo, especially for Halloween.

What are you all doing for Halloween?  We are on a “treat map” for the kiddies.  I can’t wait to see the costumes!

Millionaires Row

Another one from Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland, California.

It’s kind of hard to believe that the nickname for this row of crypts is “Millionaires Row” but it really is.  Who says you can’t take it with you when you pass on!
