Theme Day: Tombstone/Cemetery

The theme for October 1st is cemetery or tombstone. I took a photo of these ornate cement urns at a garden store in NoLIta (North of Little Italy) that I thought would make beautiful tombstones in the future.

Bel ornement, dans le bas de manhattan (pres de Ground Zero) tu as un tres beau et tres vieux cimetiere Français


Beautiful ornament, in the bottom of Manhattan (beside Ground Zero) you have very in vain and very old French cemetery

The way it sits and how you've captured it, it already looks like it's in a cemetery, well done.

Beautiful urns in a lovely setting. Are there cemeteries in Manhattan, Ming?

I did think that they were already in a cemetery ... nice shot.

~tanty~ said...

It is beautiful indeed!

Kate said...

If one judges from what is posted by other bloggers, an urn would be distinctive and different.

alice said...

Beautiful interpretation of this theme!

Ex-Shammickite said...

jelvistar said...

Oh, Ming, you crack me up! I guess we could subtitle your post -a tombstone in training ;-)

GMG said...

Better a garden store than a cemetery! :))

Neva said...

Nice shot!

Mandy said...

How much does an urn like that cost? How heavy is it? Do they deliver?

Ham said...

Excellent idea, combine entrace path with funary urn. So, when you get guest that stay that little bit too long, you'll have somewhere to put them.
