I don't believe in ghosts. But still I rather don't have a cemetery in my back garden

I agree with Boris about the quality of this photo, but . . . if there are no ghosts - who tilted the gravestone???!!!

@Boris, si l averdad que nada mal para una camarita rescatada de una tienda de caridad por menos de 5 libras.

@Scott, ahhh we know that ghosts don't exist but do the ghosts know that?

@Missi, LOL same here.

@Holden. there are loads of cemeteries like this one here, great for photography.

you know, i visit my dad at the cemetery whenever I am in Brum. The Muslim section is the most "happening" section (if it could be described as such). there are families praying, tending to plants and flowers, reading the Qur'an etc... the other sections not so much!

I did walk through the older section of the cemetery and there were graves with multiple occupants, dating back to the 19th century, something that we don't see often in Canada. Maybe because we have a lot of land?

Must be a cultural thing, in south America people are more prone to visit the cemetery as well. I've never been in a Muslim cemetery though so I can't compare

I don't think is the quantity of land but the price, one is cheaper than two. :-)
