Graves gone by

Blackman Cem02

One of the many things I love about the South and it’s backroads are the random cemeteries I come across. These plots can be of any size. I’ve seen some that hold a hundred or more of the departed, and sometimes they hold less than a dozen. Whether they are enclosed by a fence or stone walls they are sites of peacefulness, places where one can enjoy their quiet solemnity, they are all relevant and beautiful. The photos you’re about to see were all taken at various sites. I hope you enjoy them. Look for the books to come.

The Huddleston Family Plot

This is one of my absolute favorite cemeteries. It’s so very peaceful, and from a photographer’s stance the lighting is amazing.
