I leave the details in my photos of markers like grass, peonies or trees to help find the stone later. For example, if the stone is being negatively impacted by a tree I believe family should know about it so they have the chance to fix it. Photographers leaving details has helped me countless times! If you feel the need take two photos one being close up, one being panned out.

** Say no to bleach, shaving cream, and chalk on grave markers. Nothing except distilled water (ie: leave it out overnight, use de-chlorination drops from the pet store) should be used on grave markers that do not belong to you, or only with permission. **

Want to catch the relief on a stone so you can read, and photograph it? Spritz with DISTILLED water, shine a light on it, get the photo in the snow, whatever but do not clean it with cleaning products unless it is your own grave stone. One of my friends uses a big mirror that they set up to shine light on a marker so they can photograph it.

PLEASE don't hesitate to ask for a transfer of anyone in OREGON or WASHINGTON.

YOU ARE WELCOME TO MY PHOTOS. If you put my name with the photo that would be good for the next person to know how to locate the original data, but I am good with most anything.

I choose what photos I put up carefully. If my photo has high resolution compared to others? I might do it because of that. If it shows proximity of a stone compared to others to help people find it later? I most definitely do that. Example: I drove from CA to ME in summer 2017. If it were not for panned out photos I may not have found family grave markers. You are always welcome to re-order photos so your choice of photo appears at the top. -Lesley
