Photographing Gravestones #general


JOHN & DEE DEE ROSS <jnddross@...>
 

Hello Genners,
In regard to Dick's query about photographing gravestones;
A few years ago, my cousin was visiting >from Germany. We were at
"our" cemetery taking pictures of the stones in our family plot. A
grounds-keeper approached us and told us it was not permissable to take
pictures in the cemetery. That is a bunch of nonsense. Turns out it
was a "superstition" that his ethnic culture has regarding taking
pictures of graves. I ignored him. This was *my* family, *we* had paid
for the stones, and he had no business telling me that I could not
photograph them. Dee Dee Ross
