I love to hike and have an interest in genealogy, and have been photographing headstones for the past couple of years. I find it both enjoyable and frustrating. I'm certain that other photographers may agree..
The sun is in my eyes. There is not enough sunlight. The sun is creating shadows on the headstone. The headstone is overturned. The headstone is sunken. The mosquitoes are awful. If only I could make out a couple more letters, I could likely decipher who's memorial this belongs to.

The list goes on. Still love it.

Most of the volunteer photos I take are in Central PA and the Delmarva Peninsula (east of the Chesapeake Bay, incorporating DE, MD and VA). I also happen to stop along road travels now and then, but again they are mostly east of the Mississippi...

Kindly inform me of duplicates mistakenly made and I will immediately remove them with sincere apologies and gratitude.

Please feel free to use my photos, and if you wish to manage any of the memorials that I've created, please request so.
