Bonaventure Cemetery
 
Today I finally got around to visiting Savannah's historic Bonaventure Cemetery. I recently acquired a new camera body and lens and thought Bonaventure would be a good place to take them for a test drive.

A few quick edits:

And the particularly touching grave of a six year old:

Very atmospheric place.

The cemetery appeared in the Kevin Spacey movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil:

The statue of the girl had to be removed for her safety after the movie came out.

Still the honeymoon period, Mic, but I'm very happy with what I'm seeing thus far.

Nice B&W Dave.
Where's the alligators?

Mankins are lumps of cold, dead plastic. But that doesn't mean they don't turn me on.
With friends like these, who needs mankins? I do, that's who.
I love pinging my junk with a rubber band. Dr Snip taught me how.
I lead an underworld cult of mankin people.

Ah, I missed that "that". Of course "that" is in a square.
