Death is the great human unifier. Nobody knows much about the place we go after our lives on earth have concluded, but we do know that after we die, our bodies will likely end up in a cemetery.
Graveyards are everywhere—almost every city and town has one—and though they are places of mourning, they can also boast great architectural and natural beauty. Sometimes, they're very peaceful and quiet, making them ideal places to reflect and gain perspective on this short, strange life.
Waverley Cemetery, Australia
This seaside cemetery is located on the ragged cliffs of Sydney, Australia. Opened in 1877, it offers stunning views of the ocean and all that will be left of us once the final curtain is drawn. Originally a site of aboriginal significance, the cemetery is now a mix of the picturesque and the macabre.
