Working on a project using grave stones .....

Under the Old Maple Tree

Family Tree

Crosses in the Grass

Mother and Son

Close Company

This is the second post related to graves in the last week.  I am not thinking sadness, so much as honor and remembrance of loved ones.  There is a lot of reverence for beliefs and beauty in my thought process as I incorporate my photography into a  fabric piece for an upcoming exhibit. Others in this series can be found in the flickr album here:

Memorial Day Thoughts 2014

Revolutionary War Veteran

Family Plot

Last June, during a wonderful trip to Boston, I visited the town of Dedham, MA with my Aunt Anne Stone.  We toured an old graveyard decorated for the Memorial Day festivities near the town common.  Although I have photographed a lot of graveyards around Memorial Day, I had never seen Revolutionary War veterans' graves decorated.  What an historic area!

Comments, suggestions and ideas for photo shoots always welcome.

White Chair Series August, 2013

Last August at the cabin, I finally did one of the series that I had been thinking about - the White Chair Series.  I love the old chairs at the cabin.  My Aunt Barbara Moran had the wise sense to spray paint them all the same color even though they differed in style.  I dragged one of the chairs around with me a few times and came up with an interesting series, I believe : )  We will begin our Potter County adventures soon and I look forward to dragging my wooden muse with me to other unsuspecting spots.
