Poppelsdorf Cemetery
Bonn, Germany
Before moving to Germany with my wife, we visited Germany several times.  On my second visit, we drove past a cemetery and I asked her what the differences was between an American and a German cemetery.  She then asked if I would like to check one out.  I of course knew that this would be a perfect chance for me to take some photographs, so I jumped at the opportunity. 

I have since learned that there is quite a difference between American and German cemeteries.  It seems that German cemeteries are very well kept.  I do not tend to visit cemeteries that often, but it was interesting to see the differences.
When I saw the cross with the brightly colored tree behind it, I knew I had to take a photo. I also knew that when I got home I would put the image into Photoshop and turn it into a black & white photo, while leaving the brightly colored tree.  I still want to tweak this picture some more, but you will have to wait to see the finished project.  Below you find the original picture.

Isn't this a creepy place...  One of the older mausoleums in the cemetery.   I would not want to be near this place at night.
