Pinegrove Memorial Park

On the last day of the school holidays I decided to stop programming lessons for Term 2 and go out to take some more photographs. The journey to PineGrove Memorial Park took about 45 minutes on the way there, and about 75 on the way back (did not think of peak hour traffic!). It was a rather strange experience as it is a relatively new cemetery and has large tracks of unused land. The design is interesting, especially the specially designed Asian burial grounds completed with Lion gates. It is not as inviting as other cemeteries however, perhaps because it is so new and rather 'artificial' in its presentation and variety of memorials..

I have included a selection of photographs from the day here, and have added the rest to the photographic collection (see navigation bar). they turned out better than I expected. I think this might have had something to do with the light - a cold day with bright light. Most of the pictures were taken between 3pm and 4.30pm.

Ps. I have uploaded the rest of the cemetery photographs from Canberra and other Sydney locations as well, finally.
