This and That

Just a bit of random photography for today.  


I spotted this old house on a hill just outside of Perryville, Kentucky.  This small town was witness to the largest Civil War battle in the state of Kentucky, on October 8, 1862.  Makes me wonder if any soldiers roamed this land.  



As per many previous posts, I am a fan of cemeteries, this one is in New Haven, Kentucky.  I enjoy the ornamentation and architecture of the graveyards of old.  We should all be so lucky to have our grave adorned with a praying Angel.  




Finally, I love a bit of rust.  These chairs have such character!  I wouldn't want to sit in one, but as part of some outside store decor in Russell Springs, Kentucky, they caught their fair share of attention.  



Linking up with Mersad today.  Pay him a visit!

  5. Love old stuff but the hubby hates it. Love the old European cemeteries. It is scary getting old. I'm not sure that I would enjoy them as much any more. I'll be cremated someday with my ashes scattered to the four winds. Many old homesteads and barns around here with few to remember them.

  10. That must have been quite the house in it's day. I can almost imagine the people that were born and lived there, the old style clothing, the old-style way of talking.. they way they used to dine.. on whatever they grew in the garden.. or made from scratch. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  14. Lovely captures. The praying angel in the cemetery is so peaceful. I remember those types of metal chairs. When I saw this photo all I could think of was "tetanus shot!"

  22. Very neat but also sad to see that old house. There are a few still standing in similar condition in my neck of the woods...it's only a matter of time before they completely fall apart, but sometimes the old farmers like to keep them around because they hold good memories of childhood or grandparents. Other times, I think they just don't get around to taking them down till they decide they really want the farmland. It's sad to see the old homesteads go. Nice photo. It strikes me how narrow that road is though. It must be a real backroad. I can well imagine troops marching or walking down it before or after a battle.

    I share your love for old cemeteries. Thanks for sharing the photo of the gravestone with the angel.
