a crypt at St. Mary’s…

This is one of the most unique crypts I have seen.  It dates back to the late 1800’s and can be found in St. Mary’s cemetery in Pittsburgh, PA.  The blackened stones are a wonderful contrast to the plant life that is beginning to grow out of all of the crevices.  Here are some of my favorite shots of this crypt.  To bring out the full detail of the crypt in the main picture,my flickr friend, Chemival, helped me out with the HDR and post-processing.

  1. Apart from the main one (obviously…), my 2 other faves are the door and the webbing.
    There’s little more evocative than on old door with Autumnal leaves littering the threshold, the beautiful rich red of the fresh flowers just adds to the sense of mystery, time and decay. I think there’s a part of all of us that just wants to get through the doors and look inside.

    The webbing in ‘lines’ is wonderful as it again reminds me of varicose veins, fitting the ‘old/decay’ theme perfectly – lovely composition too with the layers.

    Thanks for the credit & link :))
