That its no Gothic, it is Romanic!

I totally love this! I lived there for 9 years and frequently walked on Benefit and at Swan Point.

I wonder if it would be rude to scan HPL's gravestone...

I have been told by the security staff that photography is forbidden at Swan Point cemetery. They were polite to me, but apparently there have been unpleasant incidents in the past: http://boingboing.net/2008/08/23/writer-who-photograp.html

Sigh... I know. When we first got there SP was a very popular dog-walking spot, esp the undeveloped corner there at the end of Blackstone and the back walk along the river. then they forbade that, so now the back riverwalk is overgrown and populated by sex hookups and people doing drugs. Yay.

Then they shut down photography, so now all the Providence goths have to sneak around, or take their moody photos somewhere else.To get (minimally) back on topic, it's a shame. There is some beautiful stonework on the mausoleums, the art deco angel, etc. I don't see it as trivializing or disrespectful to document this art.
