In my daily comings and goings, I constantly pass a small victorian era cemetery in Hudson NH. Set across the street from the local shopping plaza and right next to McDonalds, it stretches back behind the local Hanaford.
After seeing some of the remote and beautifully decorated landscapes of other cemeteries, it makes me think “Who would want to be laid to rest HERE?” I mean, it’s like the small graveyards in the center of Boston Ma. Who could consider THAT resting in PEACE with all the streets and large buildings that have gone up around it?
Several times I have wandered through while wasting a little time and always find myself without my camera. I keep saying “I’d love to photograph some of these statues” but the next time I’m there I find myself without the ability once again. There are some really nice angels and Celtic crosses here, being a largely Irish cemetery full of Morans, Sullivans and such, although I did see in the back and on the side, a small French section. They are still inturring people today so I’m sure eventually it will be more mixed.
Well this time (as it often is) my stroll was accompanied with the presence of my dearest friend, Peter Vaughn. He had his cell phone camera available and took a lovely picture of one of the statues. It came out so beautifully that I had him send it to me for this post. Thank You, Peter
