The Abandoned Swamps Of Louisiana Hides A Heart-Breaking Secret

Abandoned places are strangely beautiful. In addition to this, nature also starts enhancing the beauty of deserted places.

Photographer Seph Lawless loves to capture unusual and eerie places using his camera. He went to Louisiana for a photography assignment, but surprisingly discovered something unusual in the swamps of Louisiana. Seph found an old, completely abandoned pet cemetery. He managed to capture the abandoned site, but along with it he caught something heart touching. It was the love that the owners had for their beloved pets.

The cemetery is about hundred years old with grave stones in memory of pets from as far as Italy.
