For my birthday 2 years ago my husband took me shopping for a digital SLR camera. I had been BEGGING for the longest time, but those suckers are pretty pricey! So anyway, I got the Nikon D3100 and I freakin love it! Now I'm begging him for new lenses ;-)
I love taking pictures, I always have, and if you could see all the picture folders on my computer you would see that I'm never IN a photo because I'm always TAKING them... that part is kind of a bummer... oh well
The place where I live is extraordinarily rural, like we have a HUGE county and only 16k-ish people living here. Most of our county is just farmland, and we don't even have a Walmart.... that's right people, I've got to drive 30 miles (COUNT'EM!) to get to my "local" Walmart!
I know, It's freakin' nuts.
Anywho, I try to always have my camera with me when I go places because you never know when you might find something worth snapping a few shots of. (preposition at the end of the sentence, what a no-no!)
So on my long drive to Walmart there is this very small cemetery off the road about 50 yards in the middle of a planted field. I have always wanted to stop, and finally one day I did.
So here are some pics (which believe it or not I did NOT doctor!) from the tiny little cemetery in Gough, GA.
The detail on this thing was amazing.
This monument was erected in 1918...
I love this rusty old gate
apparently there was another big monument like the one in the other pics but it broke I suppose, I found it under a big tree just outside of the fence
One of the Gough's the town was named after
Her birthday is the day before mine, obviously several decades apart
