It is a very interesting cemetery, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I found it not too frequently visited though, Ray.
Wonderful image, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Elizabeth.

The history of the place clearly displayed
Ayush Basu: Those were some elaborately crafted headstones, Chris.
I like the hand and scroll at the top of the gravestone.
Ayush Basu: That is certainly very unique, Brian.
Fascinating tombstone, including a reference to the hospital where he died--a free ad, as it were. smile
Ayush Basu: Yes indeed, you made a fine remark there, Larry grin
Needs a little more restoration.
Ayush Basu: I imagine it is in better condition when compared to the time prior to the restoration, Tom.

The light is shining favourably for a photograph of gravestones.
Ayush Basu: It was a rather sunny day but the canopy was filtering it somewhat, CP.
This cemetery actually looks better when the day is dark and gloomy. wink
Ayush Basu: Ayush Basu: It was a rather sunny day but the canopy was filtering it somewhat, LC.
That is nicely shot.
Ayush Basu: Very kind of you, Michael.
Is it me, or are some of those tombstones veritable leaning towers?
Ayush Basu: They have an inclination towards leaning, Michael - bad pun intended.

I love the hand on top of this headstone. Odd id that only the father's name is there.
Lots of information on this stone too.
Ayush Basu: Not sure what was the intent of that, Astrid, of mentioning only the father's name.
I like the hand too and it is very unusual for me.
