It all falls down


Santa Rosa’s got three cemeteries –  Evergreen Cemetery, out on the north side of town; San Jose Cemetery, down a narrow road on the east part of town; and the very old Saint Rose of Lima cemetery.

That’s where what’s left of a chapel stands guard over graves and weeds as the plaster falls away from the stone walls bit by bit.

  1. It all falls down – eventually – or actually quite soon by the look of this.


  2. Interesting how it looks like there is very clean glass in the window opening. I think it is something to do with the inner darker window surround that looks like a reflection, and the slightly different tone to the sky than above the wall. Nice effect.
