A sketch-crawl through the vast Peidmont Cemetery. From the top there are beautiful vistas across the Bay Area with downtown Oakland, San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge. The layout of the cemetery has lovely swooping curves like the shape of an artist's palette. There are some incredible tombs like the pyramid visible on the left of the picture below.
This was my 'warm-up' study. I'd seen George Romero's 'Night of the Living Dead' recently and was on the look out for zombies!
Down at the main gate these old Navy veterans were entering the chapel for a memorial service. They each had a rifle which they fired in salute. I couldn't resist trying to capture them in their neat uniforms.
