Symonds Street Cemetery

Posted by on Feb 17 2005, in Photography,

Symonds street cemetery close to the heart of Auckland city. It is a weed overgrown, spooky at times place where a lot of homeless people and drug dealers hang out. There are many famous dead Aucklanders there as well. These photos were taken nearly one year ago.

I couldn’t get a good photo of it because it was so faded, but somewhere scratched a rather cryptic message on the back of a fallen tombstone:

I, Scott Smith[?] died here on 27 October, 1997. I was then resurrected on the subsequent morning.
