Cemetery Markers



There is something about old cemeteries that I find fascinating. I joke about that fact that I have a family member in nearly every cemetery in San Antonio...a testament to the size of my family, how long we have lived here and (I guess) life itself.

I took this shot in New Braunfels about 3 weeks after I got my camera. I got up early on Saturday morning and drove to the Weilbacher plot outside of Garden Ridge on Hwy 3009. After taking a couple of shots there I wound my way around until I got to New Braunfels and the cemetery there. I took several shots and may end up posting a couple more of them later. This, however, is my current favorite of that trip.

I'm sure I could do a much better job with this picture, today. But then I was still practicing with all the knobs and dials.

This might seem silly, but I like skulking around graveyards myself, and in fact joined Find A Grave (http://www.findagrave.com/) to post my family's graves. I have also considered doing local volunteer work, as all the graves listed done by volunteers. I was going to ask if you wanted to do a little of that over the summer, and then remembered - you're freakin' busy!!
