Old Cemeteries

Lately, I have had this yen to go shoot old Cemeteries, partly because that is the feature in the upcoming “Prineville Territories” magazine and partly because I really find those old headstones fascinating.  The craftmanship way back when was fantastic and the artisan’s who did the work were truely artistic of nature.  Had a thought the other day that maybe I was looking for a place for me…..quickly dispatched that idea!  Too much to do.  With a couple of the following photos, I put a texture to because of the unweildy background.  Hope you like them.Image

Richmond, OR Cemetery.  Some early burial dates here.

These are taken at the Gray Butte Cemetery in Central OR.

This next photo is taken also at Grey Butte Cemetery and shows the stark reality of the Forest Fire burning up near Mt. Jefferson right now.  Hopefully they will get it under control soon.  Lot of fires around the country.  Bad deal to watch the forests burn up.
