Those have to be the most intriguing (and somewhat unsettling) cemetary photos I've seen. Perhaps it's all the color; definitely not used to that. Excellent shots, though. Really very up close and personal. And what's up with the lock?!

I should say, the 'unsettling' was because of the one with the big face on it.

i concur - that face may me jump a bit - i've definitely had dreams like the first pic with all the crosses and the white on the door near the little red lock looks like an arrow...

nic pics, esp. the panoramic view

you know i was thinking - you've posted pictures of this cemetary before and it seems to me that the different colors and graves seem much more personal that the western tradition of carved stones, even the ornate grave markers her are almost stock examples compared with these

I agree that the cemetery was way more personal. take the grave marker made out of tools, for instance. it tells you who the guy was. I liked it there. although it was also a little creepy, and I don't know what they were locking into that tomb.

this is my last set from that cemetery.

The lock makes you feel like you're in the middle of an Edgar Allen Poe story.
