You are a pest by the very nature of that camera in your hand.

As a genealogist, I have spent a lot of time in cemeteries looking for my own relatives. For the last three years, I've been submitting photos of gravestones to Find a Grave. I've always loved graveyards for some reason. Some people may find that an odd hobby, but based on the popularity of that website, there are many people out there as odd as I am!

This was taken at Oakwood Cemetery in Raleigh. They also have an official website at: Historic Oakwood Cemetery


  1. Talk about coincidence. Another local blogger was asking me just yesterday if I'd ever been to Oakwood on a photo hunt. I grew up not so far from there actually, and I work fairly close to it now, but I've never made the trip with a camera. In fact, I don't think I've ever been inside the gate.

    I have to confess, before I read the explanation of the photo I had quite a few bizarre thoughts on first blush.

  2. LOL for the bizarre thoughts!

    It's a beautiful cemetery, well worth a trip or two. If you have a reason to visit the office there, they have some gorgeous photos decorating their walls, or you can check out the photos and videos on their website, HERE.


Thanks for taking the time to tell me what you think!
