About me

Gender MALE
Location Pennsylvania, United States
Introduction I live and work in Pennsylvania, U.S.A. I became interested in cemeteries after spending a lot of time in them researching ancestors in the mid 1990's. Ever since then, I have been fascinated with tombstones, mausoleums and all things cemetery. I am by no means an expert on cemetery stones and their meanings. I simply like photographing stones and mausoleums I think are interesting and sharing the photos with others, maybe making a comment or two. I am also a huge opera fan (VERDI is King, Puccini & Wagner Princes) and am a proud member of the American Institute of Verdi Studies in New York City and the Centro Studi Giacomo Puccini in Lucca, Tuscany, Italy. I am also very interested and study World War II History, particularly the war in North Africa. When I am not walking and photographing a cemetery or listening to an opera, I love reading history, hiking and relaxing.
