Obelisks and a threatening sky

At some point (apparently) obelisks and tall statues were popular in cemeteries. This view makes me think that maybe the clouds are about to do battle with an obelisk/statue coalition…

Masonic Marmalade

Juxtaposition. That’s what I saw here. And an abandoned building. And a restaurant and lounge that didn’t appear to be in business. And some clouds.  You know, just the usual things that I like to find.

Green (no relation) (probably)

Usually when I see cemeteries that are in disrepair, they’re little ones out in the country and I sort of feel like the relatives of the people buried there are themselves buried someplace and there’s no one left to take care of the place.

But this one? It was one of the most ragged cemeteries I’ve ever seen and it’s in Memphis, on Elvis Presley Boulevard. I noticed it because I was deliberately looking for non-shiny, non-touristy things along the fabled boulevard. And I’m not the only person who thinks it’s ragged: it’s got a one-star rating on Google.

Anyway, I don’t think the Greens buried here are related to me, but I don’t know that for sure.

Street Wig

I sort of hate to even think about the circumstances that would result in a wig, tangled up in leaves, left at the edge of a street. It can’t have been good, right?

This was the first street-wig I’d ever noticed, but a few days later and only three miles away I saw ANOTHER one. I have some questions…

Quite a few opportunities

If you happen to be in Nashville and find yourself in a church-going mood, I’d like to suggest this place, as it has many opportunities available all through the week.
