The coffin bells are ringing

I've wanted to visit Abney Park Cemetery ever since I saw the post of the beautiful Kelly Marie there.  It seems that dog walkers and runners are the main visitors. It was so pretty, I think it is the macabre romantic in me that loves wandering around such cemeteries.

  5. Oh, what a magnificent place!!! I love visiting old cemeteries this time of year; the lush foliage & vines over everything is just so divinely gorgeous.

  6. Oh Hannah, fantastic photos. I love old cemeteries too, there's an other worldly silence about them that's sort of comforting yet unnerving at the same time.
    I worked in Argentina for several months (over 10 years ago now) and I visited La Recoleta cemetery in Buenos Aires where Eva Peron is buried. It was the strangest and most beautiful place - like a little city - and is ranked as one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the world. Look it up I think you'd find it fascinating. Have a lovely weekend x (C.Pip)
