Bio and Links
Bio Photo Taphophilia (a passion and enjoyment of cemeteries) has been my main hobby since the late 1970's when I was a junior in high school. I discovered that cemeteries in and around Los Angeles were the best places to hide from truant officers. It was in these adopted sanctuaries that I began to appreciate my surroundings: the grounds, the headstones, the architecture, the artwork and most importantly, the residents.

In October of 2010, I founded The Traveling Taphophiles, a group that sets out once a month to visit cemeteries. Our travels have taken us as far as New Orleans. I'm fortunate to have met others that share my hobby and to have forged some great friendships along the way.

Once photos have been posted, feel free to use them as you wish - photo credit isn't necessary.

Happy Graving ~

Louis DuMort

I miss Chris and Martha with all my heart.

I just posted a headstone photo for #74621066. You have a photo showing when the headstone wasn't in place yet.

RE: Mark LaMura
Thank you. I thought I had deleted it earlier but I guess it did not accept deletion. This time I checked and it is gone.

Thank you so much for the photo of Emma's plaque! Emma was my spouse's great grandmother, and it's good to see an image of her final resting place.

Many thanks,
D. Bonner

Mireille Darc's grave
Dear Louis du Mort (j'adore !),

Thanks for posting Mireille Darc's memorial. I just read in the newspaper she'll be laid to rest in Paris, cimetière du Montparnasse. Picture will follow as soon as possible.

Best from France,
