I shall now commence crying because I don't have the time for doing this sort of thing lately.
Sad
I'll be doing this the rest of the night.


I do have to wonder what the first set of initials here is. The second is IHS, one of the many sets of initials connected with Jesus, the first I don't recognize. The fact that there's Christian funerary symbolism I'm totally unfamiliar with out there kind of rocks my basic worldview...

Thanks Gomez. Interesting, I didnt recognize that. I can't really make out the other initials on the stone

It looks like "F.H."
Don't suppose you noticed who was buried there? Maybe it's the person's initials.

I must be in the wrong sort of town. Folks around here find it all quite natural.

To bolster my point, here are some photos I took while out looking at Christmas decorations here in my town:



Close up:


You know the redneck joke about leaving the Christmas Lights up till June? Yeah, we do that with Halloween displays here. I should take a couple more example pictures next time I'm out walking.

what up with that picture looks normal to me haha, i have a grave yard near my house the reverend keeps coming out to me tho throwing me out not even doing any harm so wait till i have a camera with me would be far worse, again does this bring up the issue of intolerance in society

^Exactly.

My girlfriend told me I was creepy for taking photos in the graveyard. I don't understand.
The people are dead, its just a beautiful place. What is so wrong with that?

Moreover, it's what our modern idea of a "park" derived from. Cemeteries are quiet places with grass and trees and suchlike, and ideal for picnics and whatnot. Over the years, cities eventually started putting in cemeteries without graves just for the purpose of recreation, and viola, we have parks.
