Today, I made a 50 mile round trip to look for the grave of someone I'm doing a case study on. The cemetery I visited is on my partially photographed list. (See label "photograph data", post dated 6/17, for more information). While there I noticed a headstone I remembered photographing on my visit in July 2006. As I got closer I was saddened to see that the photo was no longer visible on this headstone.
This was yet another reminder of the value in my attempt to photograph the cemeteries where I live. Despite the heat, bug bites, sunburn, twisted ankles, desolate dirt roads, cow poop, prairie grass, well - you get the idea, I am doing my part in preserving the silent cities of Reno County, Kansas. So, remember with each click of the button you too are doing your part.
