courtney_marlatt The amount of history found in just one single cemetery is outstanding. #cemetery #abovegroundtombs #neworleans #stlouiscemetery #history 3d

shannonsteele "The first thing you notice about New Orleans are the burying grounds - the cemeteries - and they're a cold proposition, one of the best things there are here. Going by, you try to be as quiet as possible, better to let them sleep. Greek, Roman, sepulchres- palatial mausoleums made to order, phantomesque, signs and symbols of hidden decay - ghosts of women and men who have sinned and who've died and are now living in tombs. The past doesn't pass away so quickly here." ~Bob Dylan #stlouiscemeteryno1 #stlouiscemetery #historic #neworleans #louisiana #ig_louisiana #aj_graveyards #tv_churchandgraves #church_masters #cemetery 3d

shannonsteele Most of the tombs in St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 are white so this tomb stands out as you enter the cemetery. It's the tomb of Arthur Raymond Smith's grandmother. He's in his 80s and comes by as often as possible to paint it with bright colors. His motivation? In a cemetery where you could easily walk past a tomb and not even notice a name on a plain white tomb, he wants anyone passing to stop and take notice. He wants to remind the world that his grandmother was and will always be loved, and never forgotten. Such a beautiful expression of love. #arthurraymondsmith #historic #neworleans #stlouiscemeteryno1 #stlouiscemetery #treme #louisiana #ig_louisiana #aj_graveyards #tv_churchandgraves #church_masters #art #beauty #love #eternal 4d
