Laurel Hill Cemetery on film :: part 1

At the end of October I traveled to Philadelphia on my first big solo road trip. It’s about a 7.5 hour drive and I thought that was more than worth it to explore a new city and to see my favorite band. Long story short, the trip didn’t go as planned and I didn’t have all that great of a time. I managed to not visit any of the museums I had planned to go to and spent the majority of my time in the city looking for somewhere other than the place I had booked to stay. It was all a biiiig headache. I guess it’s not really something I want to talk about but I will say that I learned a lot about traveling by myself and I know that on my next trip to a big city alone I’ll be much more prepared.

One of the highlights from my trip was visiting Laurel Hill Cemetery. I had a few cemeteries in Philly on my list of places to visit but after at least five people recommended I go there I made it my top priority. I arrived in the area way before check in time at my airbnb so I headed straight to the cemetery. Oh my goodness. It took my breath away.

Laurel Hill Cemetery is without a doubt the most beautiful cemetery I
have ever been to and believe me, I’ve been to a lot of cemeteries. I shot six rolls of film on my trip to Philadelphia and at least four of them were from the cemetery. It was so incredibly hard to choose which ones to share so I actually have a second post of photos from Laurel Hill coming soon.
