I figured since tomorrow is Halloween that it would be appropriate to post a photo from a cemetery, since they are kinda creepy and all. Although I actually thought this grave and monument was very beautiful. I took this at the Natchez Cemetery.

I thought this was a beautiful mausoleum at the Natchez Cemetery. One of many, but this one really stood out because of its size and because of the wrought iron gate around it as well. I encourage anyone to go visit the historic cemetery full of so many interesting stories.

This carraige sits inside one of the out buildings at the Longwood plantation in Natchez. This little building was fool of old tools and odds and ends that correlate with the history of the plantation. I thought it was fitting to edit it as a monochrome image with some slight tinting.

Little Angel

Mon Oct 16, 2017

I really enjoyed my visit to the Natchez Cemetery (as much as you can enjoy a cemetery). The history and some of the intriguing stories behind some of the graves really fascinated me so my wife and I searched for the graves that we read about ahead of time. This photo is from the "Thunderstorm" grave where a young girl was buried. The grave has stairs that lead down underneath the tombstone where once upon a time the casket could be viewed by walking down the stairs so that the girl's mother could sit with her during storms because her daughter was afraid of them. Once the mother passed away the entrance was filled in but the stairs still remain. A very fascinating and even sort of sweet story. This angel sits right next to the grave looking very timid and sweet and seems to fit right in with the backstory of this grave site. There are lots of neat stories associated with old cemetaries like the one in Natchez. Friendship Cemetery in Columbus is another full of stories.

Longwood Through the Trees

Mon Oct 9, 2017

During our visit to Natchez we took the tour of Longwood and we really enjoyed both the tour and being able to walk around the grounds and take photographs. Though unfinished on the inside, the outside is a beautiful mansion with a gorgeous cupola on top. I liked how the trees framed the house in this scene.

On our way out of Natchez we decided to stop by the old Jefferson Military College. Unfortunately the gate was closed but as we drove up the road we noticed this house and learned that it was the president of the college's house and I love old houses so I thought it would make a good photo.

The Natchez Cemetery is a beautiful cemetery full of history and very interesting stories behind some of the graves. I thought this iron monument was very beautiful standing among the graves surround it.

I woke up really early to get to the bridge at sunrise and was excited to find out I could get right under the bridge to take photos, something I wasn't able to do on the opposite side of the river. Got some great colors during this sunrise.

We spent a good amount of time on Franklin St. exploring the many antique stores that they have, most of which were way out of our price range, and having coffee or eating breakfast at the Natchez Coffee Company which can be seen in this photo. We had a great time in Natchez and look forward to our next visit there.
