Hollywood Cemetery

One of my favorite places in Richmond VA is Hollywood Cemetery. I've already blogged about it but on my recent trip we went to a different part of it. This dog is guarding a child's grave.

People leave toys.

Apparently there was a fashion for fake tree stump tombstones in the 19th Century.

There was also a fashion for books.

This is a much more Classical approach.

As the stone wears away, certain features erode and others take on a bizarre prominence.

It's good for San Franciscans to experience real Autumn.
