Splashes Of Red Amid The Tombstones ..........




A few weeks back I joined a Heritage-Trail outing to "West Terrace Cemetery"
 one of Adelaide's earliest and most historic resting places
where some of South Australia's most prominent citizens are laid to rest
Percy Grainger .. Carl Linger .. Charles Kingston
Sir John Bonython  to name but a few.


Amid the grey and some-what sombre ambiance I found many splashes of colour
and even a line up of Morris cars shone to perfection
for their days outing ... obviously the Morris Club were on a club outing.

Sparkling vehicles - the owners sure must have used some "elbow grease" on their pride and joy! Like your collage, with the soft corners.

After 2 MGBs, an MGA, another another assorted MGs, I naturally love this shot.
PS - still have an MG BTW.

An unusual combination: old fascinating cars and cemeteries...

Oh that brings back happy memories Dianne, my very first car was a little Morris like the black one here, except mine was red (hand painted haha). I love that you even managed to spot a lady wearing a red coat. Gorgeous images.

Old cars, old cemeteries, on-going histories. Love the images and especially like the movement on the red woman in the background as she walks through.

Oooh how wonderful. Not sure I'd drive to a graveyard, lol, but I'd love a spin in either of these!

Great place for an outing!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Marvelous captures for the day, Dianne! Beautiful place and the colorful flowers everywhere are breathtaking! Love the old cars -- not ones you would see here! Hope you have a great week!

With the Morris Minor and the MG I thought I was looking at a scene from here in england. great to see they are looking so good. Polished with love and care.

Pretty captures of the red here and there. The old car is pretty, thanks for sharing. Hope you are having a great day!

LONDONLULU said...

Gorgeous gorgeous photos! I love the red and the fact you caught a Morris cluster! They're especially exciting in bunches :)

Julie said...

Yes, I like the lady with the red overcoat, striding along with her black brolly! Lovely perspectives for each of these shots, Dianne.

Way back in 1967 I nearly bought a red MG-B like the one in the first image. HOwever, my faltering bank-balance prevailed ...

I do hope you snapped away during your heritage tour and have a number of posts waiting for us. It certainly looks like a spick and span cemetery, and with all those notables, I am hot to trot.

Thanks for your contribution to Taphophile Tragics this week.

Fantastic shots with beautiful color, I especially love the cars!

The bronze pigs on the side of your blog here make me smile, they have me missing Rundle Mall.

Enjoy your week!

It is certainly nice to find a splash of colour in a cemetery. They can be so grey and unforgiving especially on an overcast day.

The combination with the old cars is wonderful.

We have an MGA, so I'm delighted to see photos of a well loved MGB. The Morris Minor is also a special car. Interesting find in a cemetery.
