Westminister Hall, Edgar Allen Poe’s Grave, Baltimore, MD

This visit was the pinnacle of Gothiness. On a visit to Baltimore, my friend RtM and I just happened to park near Westminister Hall, where Edgar Allan Poe is entombed. Ubergothness ensued. Clicky for slideshow. Check it out: RtM’s sweatshirt and other goodies.

Mt Comfort Cemetery, Alexandria, VA

Despite having moved home base to Gaithersburg, by August, I made new friends scattered across the DMV. Omega Maverick and I met up in Alexandria because it was equidistant for us to convene. We examined these tombstones before getting kicked out at dusk. How Goth. Clicky for the slideshow.

Playing Catch-up: Christ Church Episcopal Cemetery, Alexandria, VA

It’s been a while, denizens of the cemeteries…but we always come crawling back. This was an artist’s date after work one Saturday on which I had mid-shift.

After an acquaintance described Leesburg to me, I figured it might be a…

St Mary’s Cemetery, Alexandria, VA

Happy 2012! Finally made it to this cemetery, after an unsuccessful attempt last summer. I wasn’t a fan of the church’s mass offerings (super conservative!

Ivy Hill Cemetery, Alexandria, VA

Greetings, fellow taphophiles! Come take a walk with me through Ivy Hill Cemetery in Alexandria, Virginia! I got lost on the way there and ended up on the opposite side of the hill. It was probably one of the creepiest cemeteries I had visited since the sun was setting on a grey day and the…

Alexandria National Cemetery, Alexandria, VA

Alexandria National Cemetery is different from Arlington National Cemetery, just FYI. Alexandria’s cemetery is a much smaller affair than Arlington’s. I cleaned a container that held blueberry pie before I went, hence the pie hands. The cemetery caught my eye after leaving Whole Foods one day, and I held it in mind as a place to visit. Clicky…
