I've never seen tombs in little hills like that before (better seen by enlarging) ... interesting!

Interesting and a good photo.

Did you get a chance to see Disneyland's Tom Sawyer's Island before they changed it? This looks just like the little cemetery on the island!

Boy that is a slope down from the church to the cemetery, isn't it. A beautiful bell tower and a great sense of place given by your photo!

You know, Jim, Phelan should hire you as Quincy's official photographer. The Hancock cemetery and the First Parish church look fantastic in this photo.
