Palatial Death, Photographs

“The first thing you notice about New Orleans are the burying grounds – the cemeteries – and they’re a cold proposition, one of the best things there are here. Going by, you try to be as quiet as possible, better to let them sleep. Greek, Roman, sepulchres- palatial mausoleums made to order, phantomesque, signs and symbols of hidden decay – ghosts of women and men who have sinned and who’ve died and are now living in tombs. The past doesn’t pass away so quickly here.
You could be dead for a long time”
– Bob Dyla

    Wow Jenn, your Sepia photography is becoming quite an eye catching experience with emotional impact for me as I view these photographs.

    Thanks Jeni – Being there, at the graveyard, was quite emotional. I’m glad that came through.
