Atlanta, Georgia

Oakland Cemetery:  Atlanta is old enough to have a 'rural cemetery' of its own, and it does.  Given the rolling hills of the Piedmont, there was no problem in finding an outlying hilltop that rose above Atlanta's downtown. In the distance, you can see three of Peachtree Center's highest high rises. As for Oakland Cemetery, it has high rises of its own: in the form of Victorian tombstones that also lift the eye towards heaven. [2014]
