Graves at St Mary’s

The old St Mary’s Cemetery is situated between South End and the city centre close to where the Baakens River flows into the Port Elizabeth Harbour. Some of the graves date back to the mid 1800’s and include some of the original British Settlers who arrived on our shores in 1820. For a couple more of my pictures of the cemetery, visit The Firefly Photo Files here and here. The bridge in the background is part of the Settlers Freeway.

    Very nice indeed. Those look like really old graves.

    Old graveyards usually have great stories for the reading. A little imagination and patience. (Oh, there's no crying in photography! “sniff, sniff”. You do great work with what you have. But I admit the flexibility of an SLR is wonderful. Only trouble is it can be a money pit. Lens envy……)
