It's a small world sometimes.
Shortly after I started my cemetery blog in 2008 the Association of Graveyard Rabbits made its appearance in blogland. A great place to meet people that share my interest. One of those people is Russ Worthington.
Yesterday when I posted the update on my flickr albums I never would have guessed that someone in New Jersey would connect to the photos I snapped in rural Kansas. But Russ did. When I read my email this morning I said to myself "this is why I do it." He also shared a public thank you on his blog and facebook.
The Cottonwood Cemetery is on the route we take to the big city about 3 1/2 hours away. I finally asked my husband to stop and give me 15 minutes in it after passing by so many times. When working with such a short time frame I always head to the old section and photograph what I can since those are the ones that are being lost to time and weather.
J. Whitall Reeve, GG GF of Russ, was born in PA and rests here in KS.
