I'm a Grave Walker. A Hunter. I see dead people. If I believed, I would believe that every time I visit and photograph them, that I humanize them again. So far, no evidence of that.
Nevertheless, I truly enjoy making someone alive happy every time I fulfill a request. Re-uniting relatives is a thrill.
I recently bought a plot and ordered a memorial tombstone for four relatives who died before the age of ten, 1902-1915, and are buried in pauper graves with strangers. I have a photo of George and one of Harry. Nicest thing I've ever done for my family. Looks great. My wife and I make it a lunch date whenever we visit a cemetery. We've taken photos in Iggingen and Zuffenhausen in Germany, Auvers-sur-Oise Town Cemetery and Normandy in France and Colon Cemetery in Havana. Good stuff.
