Novinger is a little town in Missouri that is an example of the melting pot populations strung across our great Country. If you walk this cemetery, you see nationalities from all parts of the globe. I find it interesting that people from so many countries settle in a little river town in Missouri. Perhaps they didn't get along the best in life, but they now rest peacefully together in this cemetery. Let's hope anyway.

You can read more about Novinger here if you so desire.

I tried to give this an old time flavor. One for the B/W Challenge.

Cemeteries always fascinate me because of some of their histories and stories! .. ..

A marvelous piece here mate..good angle on the shot, and a doozy of post-workings!

Lyn may give you a cookie for this one!

I can think of no other subject more adequate for B&W presentation, dear SOT.
Plus I do appreciate your narrative very much.

I bet it is lovely when the leaves and grass are at their summer colors. The black and white underscore the metaphor of the living and the dead. All is good, Tick.

It certainly looks like an old B/W photo Teck. You have given it that effect perfectly.

America the melting pot , just like my country Australia. A process that is ongoing and not always trouble free.

You made a good job of it, Tick. I rarely ever pass up cemeteries in my travels. There's always something interesting. Sometimes stories, unusual markers etc.

The B&W and the fence give this image an old fashioned feel and it should do well in The Challenge.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

A great perspective and post work treatment of the photo Tick. Nice contrasts in the scene. From reading the link I suspect there are more people on the other side of that fence then there are on this side.
