Teaching Cemetery Research: Working with a Local Cemetery
I handed my old camera to my husband and told him to take photos of me while I was working and to not tell me about it. This is the best one. I will show you the less flattering ones as we go along. Gravestone photography is not glamorous.
You should never go to the cemetery alone. I have broken this rule for taking a photo in a local graveyard but it is really not safe. The ground is New England Cemeteries is lumpy and uneven. More than one friend has told me that they have stepped in a hole or fallen. Steve, my hubs, is my boneyard buddy.
I took these photos today for teaching purposes. For the new few weeks, I will be blogging about this 45 minutes I spent in this cemetery. Yes, that's right, I took about 130 photos in 45 minutes.
