the Headless Horseman tradition.
Even though I'm Georgia bound in less than a week, I woke up Saturday yearning for a City reprieve. For just a few hours, I needed to see some trees and be absent of honking horns. So, I headed to Grand Central and caught the first train to Sleepy Hollow. It turns out the town famous for its Headless Horseman is less than an hour away, and I figured its cemetery would be the perfect subject for my photo assignment of the week.
Talk about a taste of solitude! I was there for hours, and the number of people I saw could be counted on one hand. Really, the only company I had was my camera and a family of deer. Plus, the freshly fallen flurries added an extra eery quality to the tombstones.
In total, I took more than 500 photos, but thank goodness, here, I've narrowed it down to just my favorites.
|I'm not sure why, but of all the cross tombstones on display this one was my favorite.|
|This might sound a bit odd, but the stained glass window featured in this photo is actually inside a mausoleum. |
For a good 10 minutes, I snapped pictures it through the iron door's detailing.
|See, I wasn't kidding when I said it was just me and a family of deer.|

|This angel just looked so serene. How could I not snap a photo?|
