Theme Day: Cemetery/Tombstone


Its theme day here on Daily Photo and here is my contribution for the month. This church is South of Santa Fe on an old highway. I chose this one because I love the church in the backround. You have to walk thru the cemetery to get to this old church.

Please take some time to visit the other participants in todays theme day. Have a great week.

A lovely little church, indeed. Beautiful photo!

What a very nice photo. A marker of a loved one does not have to be spectacular to be remembered.

Sally said...

Everything about it is lovely, including the mountains beyond.

That is truly a scene you'd only see in the southwest. I recommend readers click and see the photo full size. Nice!

Cheryl said...

I knew your photo would be beautiful! I knew it!

Kate said...

It's a calm, quiet scene--well-chosen. It strikes me as very different from many NM cemeteries that usually are lavishly decorated.

I really enjoyed seeing this photo and church. A landscape and scene I can't experience in S.C. :)

Neva said...

A great photo.

Lynette said...

What a beautiful photo. I think it's one of the few that I've seen on theme day with a church nearby. You were right to select this for your theme day post, I believe. I love the yellow iris, too.

Wow, is that adobe church in background? awesome, never seen this kind church in cemetery before. I like the shot.

slinger said...

I must say, the church is fantastic looking. It's fitting for the area, but I never expected a church to look like this. Awesome photo.

Mandy said...

It looks how I imagine the old Wild West would look, simple graves around a simple church.

Randy said...

Thanks to everyone who stopped by. I don't think I ever had so many people stop by even when I was doing the Phoenix blog. :-)

I like this contribution to theme day a lot. It is what I would hope to find in Santa Fe if I were looking for a cemetery
