  1. Amazing! Surely a testament to the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words “

  2. Great photography – you really feel the peace and beauty. Reminds me of Mount Auburn Cemetery. What’s the picturesque style?

  3. Hey there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after
    reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyways, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back often!
