The Rough Draft

If you can't go through it. Go around it.

Took a ride this morning out the Toronto Necropolis.  I’d seen a local documentary done on it and I’d been wanting to check it out for a while.  The Cemetery dates back to the mid 1800’s and it gives you a real feel for the early make up of the city.  A lot of deaths for people in their younger years an lots of children’s memorials.  It was also interesting to see how many of the headstones weather.  Marble seems to be good.  Limestone breaks down within a hundred years to the point you can’t read any details and I think there was a trend in the 20’s to make them out of concrete.

I felt I wanted texture for this set, so the majority of the shots are in HDR.

The stained glass in the chapel.

The front gates

 

The Bell Tower

Never seen a headstone with an addendum before.

 

Time has not been kind to the details of Mr. Fawcet’s passing.

Scottish but the symbols are confusing. Also I think this one is made of concrete.

As is this one.
