There's something very inspiring about Green-Wood: it's part urban greenspace, part enchanted forest, part necropolis. As a historical fiction writer, I love reading the epitaphs and thinking about the lives of the people who now populate Green-Wood; as a fantasy writer, I love the spooky trees, the long shadows, the hills, the really old and weather-beaten stones, the statues, the gaudy mausoleums.
In addition to writing, one of my other creative loves is photography. I studied for three years at an audition-only gifted & talented middle school, and it's never really left me. Here, for your own inspiration, are some of my favorite photos I've taken at Green-Wood. I'll post more in the coming weeks.

|I asked my 5YO to put his hand on this |
really old and faded tombstone, because I thought it
would seem extra creepy. What say you, world?
|Speaking of creepy, check out this memorial |
to some kid. My 5YO saw it and told me that
this little boy is lost.
|Someone decapitated the Weeping Angels!|
|She's unofficially called "The Bride," and she's famous |
for those staring, creepy eyes.
