A Morbid Fascination

Jeffery Smith's blog A Morbid Fascination never fails to amaze me. His site contains beautiful photographs and images of cemeteries and tombstones from all over the world. The subtitle of A Morbid Fascination reads The Art and Lore of Cemeteries and Tombs. The image in the post below features a haunting piece of art by William-Adolphe Bouguereau. Two women are seen mourning in a cemetery. The work was done in 1859. Check out A Morbid Fascination to view many more works of art and photographs of tombstones.

Thank you. I'm having fun with that blog, and my young people provide a lot of encouragement.
