Photographing Churches & gathering old photos for the web site
If you visit the area or live there, why not photograph a cemetery? There are many small ones that can be photographed in less than an hour! I There is an urgency to get the headstones photographed. The cemeteries are being vandalized and many headstones are just not readable anymore... What happens when our great grandchildren go to visit the cemeteries and they have nothing to look at? You CAN help by making a record of them by way of photograph.
