Calvary Cemetery in the Snow


One of my unofficial goals for 2015 is to visit a bunch of new-to-me cemeteries. It won’t be hard since I haven’t been to a ton, which is a shame because I LOVE them. But since I am trying to be more adventurous and independent and taking my camera everywhere I go, the conditions are perfect!

Yesterday I visited Calvary Cemetery in South Portland. It had snowed all Saturday night and into Sunday morning, so it was absolutely gorgeous — the roads were plowed a bit and there were some small paths but it was largely untouched snow. I put my boots on, bundled up, grabbed my headphones, and headed off. The front of the cemetery is mostly newer graves which aren’t as interesting to me, but the further back you go the older they are. I couldn’t find a ton of information about this cemetery, but it seemed to have a large number of Italian names. It was really beautiful and peaceful — the snow plus the cold temperature meant I only saw two other people during my hour-long walk. There were lots of beautiful trees and a duck pond as well as a bridge (which was barricaded on Sunday, unfortunately). Now for the photos!
