|Bio and Links|
Taphophilia (a passion and enjoyment of cemeteries) has been my main hobby since the late 1970's when I was a junior in high school. I discovered that cemeteries in and around Los Angeles were the best places to hide from truant officers. It was in these adopted sanctuaries that I began to appreciate my surroundings: the grounds, the headstones, the architecture, the artwork and most importantly, the residents.|
In October of 2010, I founded The Traveling Taphophiles, a group that sets out once a month to visit cemeteries. Our travels have taken us as far as New Orleans. I'm fortunate to have met others that share my hobby and to have forged some great friendships.
Once photos have been posted, feel free to use them as you wish - photo credit isn't necessary.
Happy Graving ~

Thanks for your help in taking the picture of this grave. This lady was one of my mom's first cousins, for which I have been trying to obtain pictures. This helps me get one step closer.
