Highgate Cemetery – Halloween Special
There you have it! A dark, gloomy, autumn-appropriate post. We took this photos in Highgate Cemetery
, in the East part of it to be more exact. Highgate is one of the most famous burial grounds in London (FIY, Karl Marx’s grave is located here) and it’s also a nature reserve. I had visited it during one of my previous trips to London, and I figured Eve would want to see it as well (for some extra thrills induced by a certain
Doctor Who episode).
We intended to visit the West part, too, to see the Victorian mausoleums and the catacombs, but unfortunately the tours must be booked in advance and we didn’t get the chance to do that. The cemetery provided a perfect backdrop for a not-so
-spontaneous shoot, featuring a recent acquisition, The Resurrectionist
: The Lost Work of Dr. Spencer Black, by E. B. Hudspeth. I recommend it, especially if you are fascinated with mythological creatures and stories about the obscure.
Anyway, while visiting Highgate, we concluded that it must be a great source of inspiration for writers – not that there is a lack of sources in London. It was grim, almost empty, silent with the exception of the sounds of birds and your own steps. And your mind gets flooded with all sorts of ideas. Like this:
