Entry Description: While wondering around New Orleans, working on a separate project, I decided to take a break and visit the cemeteries, which are very much a part of the landscape of the city. While there, I became obsessed with taking photos of these trees that had spent their many years growing around and through the plots. Plots that were older than these grand trees.
