One of the first threads in this group included a lot of pictures people had taken of their favorite cemeteries. Perhaps people would like to continue that idea and post pictures of their own local sites.

Here's a page of pictures of a cemetery near me that I visit often:

Here is a slide show of a very old cemetery in Guatemala City, Guatemala. Some of these are really breathtaking. You may have to copy/paste the link, I don't know how to do it otherwise.

That's a really beautiful set of pictures. The place has a real necropolis feel to it. And it is fascinating to see that they had an Egyptian revival phase also.

Here's a post I did on one headstone. It's a modern headstone, with art drawn by the deceased etched onto the black marble...
