Memorial Day

A bike trip through the Blue Mountain Cemetery on Memorial Day lead me to discover  some very beautiful grave markers.  Our cemetery reads like the town phonebook.  All the well-known names are engraved here, some in large mausoleum style structures, on statuary, urns, pillars, and headstones of all kinds of shapes. There is a disconnect between the design of contemporary markers and what went into creating the grave markers in past decades.  Consideration for material, typeface, ornamentation, and variation of size and shape seems to have diminished.    I took a few pics of the old ones that caught my eye.   R.I.P
