The Other Side

Under the Prospect Hill Cemetery in Brattleboro, Vermont, once again.

    • Thanks John, and yes, it’s that time of year… I love wandering in old cemeteries (I know I’m not alone on that account). The underground vaults are always quite fascinating but typically locked down tight as a drum and rather unapproachable. The Prospect Hill vault was different though; I stumbled upon it completely by accident, tucked away on the edge by a little cul-de-sac near the Civil War Soldier’s Lot (another wonderful photo opp for later) and I was intrigued to see it was showing a bit of its shadowy interior. So dark in there, with the sun’s brightness blinding me and my iphone outside…
