    Excellent pics! I can’t wait to steal them and pass them off as my own.

    Do you plan on photoshopping yourself many times over in the shots like @JamesPlankton ‘s cemetery photos?

    Jeff, haha.

    Dan, when it comes to cemetery photo shoots, I’m unambitious and dull compared to @JamesPlankton.

    These are great photos. I am sure that you know that only a few weeks ago the cemetery was a bleak, overgrown, desolate eyesore. The United Way sponsored a Day of Caring for local organizations in cooperation with the Knox Foundation to clean up another one of the City’s overlooked treasures. I have many photos of the “before” that are no so attractive.

    The City of Hartford will undoubtedly let the bucolic scene deteriorate. It’s what they are good at.

    Thanks Hartford Watcher. I didn’t know the details about the condition of the cemetery, but knew the city was making an effort and there is a lot to the story as you indicate. The place could really benefit from care with attention to detail. It’s being vandalized, needs protection and repair, not just an occasional mow (although that’s a step in the right direction).

    Are you able to share the before photos? Let me know if so, I’d like to share those with any interested readers.
