A Showman’s final resting place.


I decided to take a leisurely drive into Hugo this morning to visit the only (as far as I know!) cemetery dedicated to circus folk.
I understand that Hugo was a huge wintering spot for 20+ circuses. Some of the perfomrers stay behind and find their permanent peace here.

Photos taken with the Nikon D4 and the 24-70 f/2.8 lens are here:
Showmen’s Rest.

As the sun was already ablaze, I will have to come back one day to shoot some of the other headstones in the cemetery.

Another section of the Mt. Olivet Cemetery is called “babyland”. I am not sure if other cemeteries place all babies in one section, but it was the first time I saw that.

Here is the LINK to the cemetery on Google Maps.
