Savannah is one of my favorite cities to visit, and it hosts one of the South’s most beautiful cemeteries.
Bonaventure Cemetery was made famous by the book and movie, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Sometimes spelled “Bonadventure”, this is a large, eerie cemetery at the bank of the river.
It is well worth a visit when you’re in the Savannah area. The gravestones and monuments in this cemetery are often large, beautifully carved, and unique.
Plan to take a lot of photos, because there are so many plots with art that is worth photographing.
The color in the cemetery tends to look almost monochromatic in the heat of the day. (The photo above is in color, exactly as I took the photo. No colors were adjusted.)
I didn’t observe the same color anomalies in nearby Savannah, either before or after our photo session.
I haven’t had time to investigate the many ghost stories of that cemetery, but my daytime explorations suggest that this is a wonderfully haunted location.
