This shot was taken at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts. This is the place to go for beautiful grounds and interesting gravestones. Longfellow is buried here as well as Mary Baker Eddy. Did I mention that the birding here is fabulous? Roger Tory Petersen was a frequent visitor in the Spring when all the warblers come back North. The beautiful lilac colored tree is an Eastern Redbud and the white tree is a Dogwood. All photographs were taken on a dull day with Fuji Sensia 200 slide film, in the Spring of 2000.
The view looking at the side of the Administration Building.This image illustrates how beautifully the grounds are kept. The Dogwoods are fantastic!! It is hard to believe that behind the building is busy Route 16 with all it's noise and confusion. Here you are in a cocoon of peace and solitude.
This peaceful scene is the setting for the tomb of Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910), the Discoverer and Founder of Church of Christ, Scientist, and The Christian Science Monitor newspaper. A myth persists that she was interred with a functioning phone.
