Oakwood oddities

Seen in Raleigh

Downtown’s Historic Oakwood offers plenty for visitors to see. There are period homes, lush gardens, and Raleigh’s oldest private cemetery. The News & Observer’s photo editor and staff photographer Juli Leonard took to these tree-lined streets with iPhone in hand to photograph some of the more unusual aspects of the neighborhood she calls home. Leonard says her limited equipment provided a creative challenge, and changed her perspective entirely. The result is a collection of mysteriously spooky images befitting the season.
