Several years ago, I bought a new digital camera and wanted to take it out and practice. I knew Mountain View Cemetery was close, but had not been there, so off I went to see if there were any photo opportunities. I shot a days worth of photos and then came back to "process" them.

In one of the photos, in the glass of the crypt's door, some people believe they see a woman's face. Although I myself do not believe in ghosts, some friends are convinced that is what the photo shows, a ghost. That one photo sparked my interest and led me to researching the family buried in that crypt, and along the way to FindaGrave.

I volunteer for photos for the Mountain View Cemetery, in Oakland, California. It is an absolutely beautiful place. If you have not seen it, you can check out some of my photos here: View my Mountain View Cemetery Photos.
