I've lived in Eugene, Oregon since I was a child (originally from Superior, Montana).|
Currently retired/disabled and photographing gravestones for a hobby and exercise.
Any and all photos that I have posted are for whoever wants them. Please feel free to use them and/or post them however you want. No reference or credit needs to be given me.
Note to other photographers:
Many (if not most) people would love to see their ancestor's gravestones in full and in their setting. When shooting a stone, please take it from a distance enough to capture the stone accordingly. If it's one of those old, tall stones, take two shots; one as described and one close-up of the name and dates.
I have had to add shots to hundreds of memorials that already had shots because the existing one was just a close-up of the name and dates.

Hi Rod, I agree totally with your statement of headstone photos, I have gotten many that can't be read whether from light, angle or distance. I have umbrellas, brushes, and other things to help with the lighting and clean up to make just the right picture. It's a huge disappointment when that happens. Thank you for your contributions. Pat

Hello. Can you please transfer to me Joseph Harlan Collins page. He is my Grandfather and I was going to create a page for him, when I noticed you have one. Thanks SO much
Thank you for the headstone photo of Mary Barnard in Springfield, Oregon!

Thanks for the photos of the marker on my cousin's grave....Katherine Rachael "Kathy" Brown Goyne. The one I had taken was after her husband's death and before hers. Since I live in FL, I had no way of getting another without someone in the area taking it.

Thanks for the heads-up on the incorrect burial location for Mary Sidwell, memorial #20152928. Her memorial was transferred to me. I did not request the transfer and I have not done any research on her. It was just as I received it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I have been trying for years to find where Uncle Curl is buried. His daughter could not remember. I am sending his father and mother memorial numbers through the edit button. But I just wanted to tell personally, thank you so much for putting in Uncle Curl. Deeply grateful Penny Neeson
