While I was in Santa Barbara this summer I came across these spectacular gravestones in the Old Mission graveyard. Thankfully Emily brought her DSLR so we were able to leave with some nice photos. I should be clear though, I cannot claim many of these beautiful shots. Emily knows her way around a camera much better than I do!
Currently I do not know who is responsible for these expertly carved stones (potentially a few different hands at work?), but if you have any information on the subject please get in touch.
