Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 along the way.

Once photos have been posted, feel free to use them as you wish - photo credit isn't necessary.

Happy Graving ~

Louis DuMort

I miss Chris and Martha with all my heart.

RE: Albert Frey
Hello Louis... thanks for the Kaufmann House note on Albert Frey. I agree with you... however, as you know, although I created the memorial a while back, Findagrave made the memorial a "famous person" one and I no longer manage the memorial and I cannot correct the error. You will have to write to the help desk at Findagrave to have them remove the photo or replace it. Frey is one of my favorite architects, as well. So many great structures. I'm sorry about that error I made when I originally created it. Cheers, Christian
