The Dead Rise in Kensal Rise!

October 31st, 2017

Me and my camera in a spooky cemetary…

I went down to kensal rise cemetary to pay my respects to a dear departed friend and couldn’t help but notice that the tombstones looked like they were being literally pushed out of the ground by what I could only presume was the residents of said cemetary. I am not one for the supernatural but it was difficult to ignore. It looked like they were all planning an escape until I read the sign at the exit:

ah, month of the dead! Of course! I wondered if October was a particularly good month to die and if the cemetary was doing a discount if you popped your clogs in October. Die now, get one free sort of thing. Maybe they thought that just one day for the dead wasn’t enough and they needed a whole month to do their thing. I guess everyone needs an occasion to feel special and the dead are no exception. Who knows? I have obviously seen the Thriller video, as am sure you have, so we know how this plays out…I guess all that’s left to say is Happy Halloween and Happy Month of the dead!
