Shooting in the Boneyard

My youngest son and I are hooked on photographing graveyards. Especially on dreary overcast days. He hasn't got up the nerve to go at night!

I'm not sure what my fascination with them is. I've always been interested in mortuary science as well. Anyone know of an embalming room I could shoot? :)

This one is a little creepy. It's so old, I guess it just busted open. I tried to get Hunter to crawl down in there and let me get a shot. He flat out refused. What's wrong with these wimpy kids these days??


What are your big plans for Halloween? We usually have a bon fire and give out candy. Ryan is working the local haunted house. Maybe some chili and some good scary movies!

  1. Hello there!
    Your spooky pics are fantastic!
    I think cemetaries are interesting to tour and read the tombstones.
    For Halloween I hope to stay home and hand out candybars. I have wanted to hand out full size candybars since my children were young. I'm doing that this year! Give the Granny a pat on the back. My kids are now 34, 31 and 28. So I've waited awhile.
    Thx for visiting my blog and Thanksgiving sounds great.

  3. Those are some spooky photos! I love them! There is no way in hell I would of crawled in that thing so you could get a pic!
    The guys usually take the kids out, and I stay home and watch ghost hunters live and pass out candy.

  8. Hello sweet Shauna - ooooh lovin' these photos. I too am intrigued by cemeteries. The older the better. I don't know why either. They're just cool. Our Halloween tradition besides decorating is to carve pumpkins, and on Halloween evening I make grilled cheese sand"witches" and tomato soup. Then we take the kids around the neighborhood for some trick-or-treating, then back home to hand out candy. So fun!

    Blessings,

  9. Spooky! We're from New Orleans so cemeteries are in our blood, LOL! If you go to nolacemeteriescom you can see some cool pictures of the cemeteries in the Big Easy. My husband thought I was nuts but we visited a cemetery in Paris. It was different. They had tombs dating back to the 600's (not a typo but really year 600). They also had a sign for each section that told the person's name, date born, date married, date died, and profession. It was really cool because it made each tomb more personal.
