Day 137 – Lexington Cemetery

While in Lexington last week, Zbeth and I decided to visit The Lexington Cemetery.  We had no idea how large, or how historic the cemetery was until we got there and started looking around.  The cemetery was established in 1849, and covers 170 acres.

The area of the cemetery that drew my attention the most was the extensive portion reserved for military personnel.  Several of the grave markers contained simply a name and state.  But all the military markers were relatively the same, and I couldn’t resist the repetition shot.

    Oh my gosh Bonnie. This is easily my favorite photo you’ve ever posted. The composition of this picture is fabulous. The repetition of the grave stones at the angle really draws your eye and adds so much depth to the overall shot. And the gorgeous trees in the background are spectacular! SCORE!!!!!
