St Louis Cemetery / inspiration 3

Last spring my husband and I went to visit our dear friends in New Orleans - a city we have been to several times (NOLA holds a very special place in our hearts). On our way out of town we stopped in at the St. Louis Cemetery to walk around and snap some photos. My husband had just been given a great camera from his mom and had been wanting to capture more of our adventures so we can turn them into large scale prints for our home. It may sound like an odd place to start, but there is something so hauntingly beautiful about this place. It's hard to put into words but if you have been here you know what I mean. The stones are monumental, some dating back to pre-1900's, so it is impossible to take in the experience without being moved. If you ever get a chance to visit New Orleans, put this on your itinerary and make sure you stop in. It's a powerful place...
