Photography fun! in a cemetery...Trinity church NYC

How about some more photos from our NYC vaca?
 I found these in my archives and thought I would share and document more of our summer vacation.
I have exclaimed before, I love taking pictures in Old cemeteries.  Not sure why, and honestly, I just found this to be true this year...
 You can read about that HERE
Mike and I were kicked out of a market and strangely enough wound up in a cemetery.

This church was located..near Wall st. Trinity Church
est. 1696

Many people were just sitting on the benches, reading, sleeping, etc.  It was very peaceful indeed

I love the green patina this took on.
 Trinity includes the graves and memorials of many historic figures such as Alexander Hamilton, William Bradford, and Robert Fulton.
The first service is held in the new church

I could have spent more time here, (not literally) however, my boys were not as thrilled with the scene as I.
Anyone else love cemetery photos?
Have a wonderful day!

See you on Monday for the newbie party.

These photos are gorgeous! What a beautiful area! I've only been to NYC once to visit my sister, and it was during Christmas, chaotic, and rainy the entire time! I'll have to go back one spring or fall so I can see all the gorgeous areas like this!

Beautiful photos. Hubby and I did the same thing in Salem Massachusetts. There is also lots of old history there. I have never seen that area when we have been to NY, not sure how we missed it.

That was really interesting but I was more concerned why you and Mike were kicked out of the to go over and read that one again. Too funny.

Yes, I love to look at old cemetaries. I once went to a famous one in Savannah. It felt a little creepy walking through there, but then I realized how beautiful it was right beside a river and spanish moss draped in the branches of the old oak trees. It was quite interesting to read the dates on the headstones. Such history!! It was also interesting to see how young people died back then. You didn't photograph any ghosts in there did you? Ha!

I'm not sure I should admit it but I love cemeteries. Walking around looking at the headstones and wondering about the people and the lives they lived. Always gives me a peaceful feeling. Have a great Sunday! I miss your Newbie Party. :o(

You pictures are great. Bring the camera, there some great cemeteries in Savannah. This church and cemetery are particularly peaceful looking.
My Daddy taught me to drive in a cementery in Atlanta. He said "Maybe you won't kill anybody here!".
I remember you and Mike getting kicked out of Fresh Market. Their loss.

Love the photos. I too have a facination with cemeteries, especially really old ones. Have you seen the tombstones that have a picture of the deceased on them? They are kind of creepy but interesting!!

Yep, gotta know why you got kicked out of the market! DO TELL! One of my favorite places in Salzburg, Austria was the cemetery. You can see it at the end of Sound of Music when they are hiding from the soldiers. It's a hauntingly beautiful place.

I LOVE your photos! all of them!
Our farmhouse built in 1848 was just a few acres from an old, and I mean OLD cemetary! My girls and I liked walking over there and reading the headstones, and trying to imagine what the people were like that were buried there...all from the 1800's.
Fun, but a little wierd, I guess.

I just love the old headstones. The new cemeteries with the flat headstones so they can mow are so uninteresting. Whereas the old ones are so lovely. I never thought of taking photos in them though. I will have to do that because your photos turned out so lovely.

Hi Debbie, I love your photos they are really beautiful. I love going to our cemetary at home and walking through the old section and reading the stones. I once came upon a section that had many people that had died long ago on the same date. I went home and did alot of research and found that there was an explosion at a factory that had killed many people near a lake that I had never heard of. Not only was it interesting but I learned something about our town that happened over 100 years ago. I hope you have a great day!

I love to wander through old cemeteries- there is so much history and really a beauty and quiet that is not often found in other places.
