Autumn's Soft Edges




Mount Wollaston Cemetery is beginning it's autumn show.  I really like how the grey bark of this mature maple tree renders with a little post-processing.

Splendor at Mt. Wollaston



Autumn is a beautiful time to take a cemetery stroll. The trees don't have to compete with each other for light so we get to see them in all their autumn splendor. I will share a few others in days to come.

Remembering



Today's post, from Mount Wollaston Cemetery, was taken in the quiet of the dawn, in honor of the soldiers who gave their lives for our country.

Labor Day

[click image to enlarge]

I discovered this beautiful bronze relief on the side of a monument in the Mount Wollaston Cemetery. The monument is inscribed with the following: "The International HCB&C Laborers' Union of America to D. D'Alessandro". After doing a little research, I learned that D.D'Alessandro was a AFL leader for "hod carriers" in 1920, and had an office listed at 25 School Street.

Quincy has had a history of supporting labor unions that goes back to their inception in the late 1800s.
