Hardster, MarkP and myself did a bit of a late afternoon photowalk around Waverley Cemetery back in May. Here's a thread to share some images from what proved a nice opportunity to meet some forum members and to enjoy a glorious still Winter sunset. A little bit on Waverley Cemetery itself... It's located on cliffs just South of Bronte beach in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs looking East across the Pacific Ocean. The Cemetery has always been a 'private' self-funded one raising income from burial/maintenance fees, so tends to have some grander gravestones, statues, crypts etc. dating right back to its 1877 opening. It's in a real million billion dollar spot overlooking some of Sydney's most celebrated beaches, including Bondi's golden crescent. However the cemetery itself is in a constant need of repair/in fundraising mode as it doesn't generate any excess income. I'm not aware of any celebrated photographers buried here (yet ), author Henry Lawson is probably the most well known resident. MP, Portra 160 MP, Portra 400
