Thursday Doors – 13

Doors at a Cemetery

As I did last week, I will tie this post to my earlier Monday Window offering. We are visiting historic Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta. Established in 1850 as Atlanta’s first cemetery it has served as the final resting place to most notable and prominent people of Atlanta. Many of the graves are elaborate edifices and there are many monuments and mausoleums.

Here, just a couple with impressive doors.

You are quite right, some of the tall structures behind that mausoleum are not cemetery monuments, but the tall buildings of Atlanta. Take a closer look.

One final door, and this photo was also shown last Monday, this one the entrance to the tactfully named pub next door, Six Feet Under.

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. The activity is conducted by Norman Frampton.

  2. Very well done Ludwig. Beautiful shots!
    If all goes as planned I should be in Atlanta later this summer on business; if so, I’ll have to check this place out.

  3. Mausoleums fascinate me! The materials, money, and time dedicated to honouring our dead sometimes baffles me., but I certainly appreciate the beauty. The doors with the scrolls are terrific.

  4. Haha, love the pub at the end! What a find. The ornateness of the doors of the mausoleum is wonderful, especially being so weathered. Thanks for sharing.
