4th entry – boston 2010
Saturday morning, Mac and I went first to Forest Hills Cemetery and then to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts .
Forest Hills, chartered in 1848, is among the first ‘park-cemeteries or rural-cemeteries’ in the nation. (Allegheny Cemetery, opened in 1845.) The entrance is Victorian and massive. What I really liked is the bell-tower. In the pic, it’s on the left in the background. It’s a functioning bell-tower and tolls the hours. I haven’t found any other cemetery with a working bell-tower. The picture composition was serendipitous, the car drove through as I was shooting. And I must have shot at the right time to capture the car without any streaking.
I will add pictures of Forest Hills in the Additional Pages on the cemetery text-section of the webpage.
