Nearing night in the Garden of Good and Evil - I forgot about stopping and haunting the cemetery

This is not THE cemetery where the famous statue is from the movie with Kevin Spacey and John Cusak and of course “the Lady Chablis”. That cemetery is on the outskirts. This one is in the heart of town, and I passed it on my way back to the motel, and, in the absence of tourists and the abundance of parking places, I stopped and paid a short visit.

2. Ohhh, the lack of color in that last one!

I love it.

What are those brick structures in the first photo? They don't look like any mausoleums that I have ever seen, but...what else would they be.

4. A more clear one for you

I can only imagine they are ancient mausoleums. The dates on the grave stones are the oldest I've seen in a coon's age. Most of them I cannot read. But then, it was getting dark, I was alone, and it was a hauntingly eerie place with lots of ghosts.

6. New Orleans has above ground tombs.

Maybe a high water table forced them to either dig shallow graves or. Build above ground vaults.

7. Love that last one!

The lack of color in the moss suggests an infrared shot, which would be very cool on it own.
