Louisiana Gothic

Just a photographer and her camera and a church with Gothic windows and a conveniently-placed leading line…

Upon Row

Above-ground tombs like this are always a sign of a high water table. Or a low elevation. The camera’s GPS says the elevation of this place is 39.4 feet, which is actually relatively high for this part of Louisiana; there were many places that had elevations in the negative numbers.

It was a lovely cemetery, nicely kept with new white paint on rows and rows of markers.

Who knows why a few graves are set away from the main part of the cemetery, pushed to the corner like that?
