Cemetery Brings Instant Creeps

This week’s Six Word Friday uses the word “instant” –

Sometimes the cemetery brings instant creeps. 

As much as I enjoy looking around Hollywood Cemetery, every now and then I’ll find something that with one look, is instantly creepy.  I don’t feel that way about much that’s there; most of it is really pretty.  This one though seems to be a function of its age and materials.

For contrast, here’s the elegant resting place of Lewis Ginter, tobacco magnate and of course, founder of the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens that I enjoy so much.

Have a good weekend!

    • Time has really changed some of what’s there. Some of what’s there has been replaced at some point and is not as deteriorated as other, older monuments.

    • When we lived in Iowa, there was a cemetery behind our neighbors across the street and I walked over there nearly every night that the weather permitted. I loved it, as did many others. The owners encouraged a family atmosphere with a pond for feeding the ducks and all kinds of walking trails.

    • Thank you. I got your note before the weekend started and very much appreciated you dropping it to me It was a great weekend, although all we did was chores and errands. Got a lot done though, which was very satisfying.

    • You are right about that – it’s very solid looking with a nice architecture to it. Cemeteries don’t bother me, but that one is pretty different than the other ones.

  1. Normally cemeteries do not scare me but your first photo did give me a touch of the creepy crawlies. Like a house that would lure in little children, think Hansel & Gretel.
