Welcome To My Garden
San Clemente Cemetery is located off of Main Street in Los Lunas, New Mexico. It is not abandoned. There is an old section and a new section but there are graves in the new section from this year so it is very much an active cemetery with frequent visitors so being quick, respectful and discreet was vital to the success of my visit. All of my photos are from the old section but there were visitors bringing fresh flowers to graves in the new section while I was there.
A word on possible side effects...
I never go to cemeteries at night (no light = no photos) and of course I never mess with the graves or take anything home but nonetheless, there can still be side effects from spending time with the draining energy of a cemetery.
I only spent about half an hour here at 11:30am but when I got home I suddenly felt completely exhausted, like I hadn't slept in a week. I took a two hour nap and wasn't able to get any other work done for the rest of the day. My personal feeling is that it was the energy from the grave pictured in the first image.
