In one of my classes, we had to pick our own project and then develop and mount our photos. Now, this was in October and we lived on Fort Monmouth. Not a whole lot to choose from to make an interesting project. But, I had visited some of the cemeteries (my husband was big into genealogy at the time) and was impressed with the headstones. So, that's what I based my project on: Cemetery Art.
This picture is one of my favorite ones. I took numerous photos, on different days, with different light, just trying to get it right. I found the overcast days were the best.
They were also the best to get me sick. After I completed this project, truding through endless cemeteries on cold, wet days, I ended up with pneumonia!
Anyway, I thought I would post a picture or two each Monday (see...I came up with a theme on Mondays now) until I ran out of pictures.
Can't say my project was all that great - I think I got a B - but it was fun (except for the getting sick part). You ever want to see some great statues, just visit a cemetery around Ft. Monmouth (that would be Eatontown, Long Branch, Red Bank, Asbury Park, etc.).
