Bonaventure cemetery

Today I finally had the opportunity to spend some time in Savannah's famous Bonaventure Cemetery. Last January we attempted a visit, but arrived at the gates just as it was closing. If you're like me and enjoy roaming through historic graveyards, then Bonaventure is a must-visit -- and give yourself some time to fully explore the grounds. The captain and I spent 90 minutes there and I know we didn't see all the areas.

All told, I took more than 400 photographs today, many of them at Bonaventure. Above is just a wee taste of what I saw there; this lovely weathered angel with the star atop her head was a real find. I particularly like the dripping moss, a frequent sight in this cemetery. I enjoyed the post-processing on this photo but would have liked more time with it -- our evening was also filled with dinner at Paula Deen's restaurant, The Lady & Sons, along with packing up (we leave for Florida tomorrow) and making sure we didn't miss the latest episode of House. Crazy busy day, and evening. After I get more settled I can promise you that many of the photos I took at Bonaventure today will make their way to my Flickr site!

Gorgeous photo! It looks like the cover of one of Ann Rice's novels set in New Orleans. Very moody and atmospheric.
