Our World Tuesday: A Captive Audience for Dell and Me

Della and I headed out on a very cold Sunday afternoon to play with our cameras. I gave Dell my Canon PowerShot because it's time for her to move up from her pocket Canon and for me to make better use of my DSLR.  So we literally stepped out of the comfort zone, froze our fannies off, and spent some time with subjects that didn't moan and groan as we made our way around the buttons and dials of our picture machines.

This graveyard in Roxbury, Connecticut, is filled with families and war heroes. It's a neat place. There is "wife of" after "wife of", children resting under tiny stones, and there is Edd. His last name is Ward (Edd Ward. Yes.) and he was killed by a horse on a July 4 in the 19th century. Poor Edd.

  2. I love graveyards to take pics in, the older the better. Looks like yours is older than any I've been in. I like trying to figure out the family situations based on the stones. I've seen a few consecutive "wife of" stones but not more than two.

  7. They certainly leave a story behind in these places
    Its a great place to visit
    Sometimes you find some one very special you never dreamed you would find.Sometimes you find sad stories especially where children are concerned.
    They also show of the area consisted of farmers or business people. They disclose ethnicity although many people cremate today so much is lost.

  11. You two found a good place to practice (although it doesn't look to me like you needed it!)...But you're right, the photo subjects you chose there are pretty quiet and not fussy, not matter how many shots you wanted to take.

    Seriously, we like to visit old cemeteries -- and this looks like a very interesting one.

  12. Stones in the old cemetaries are so interesting. I wonder what people will think of the stones we use now. Will people walk through and admire them?
