Stories in Drawyer’s Cemetery, Odessa Delaware

For a while now I’ve been photographing angels in cemeteries for a series I’m working on. Last weekend I was at Drawyer’s Cemetery in Odessa Delaware and found two sad stories and one celebration of life. I can’t imagine being George Janvier or Charles Matthews. I know childbirth was dangerous and infant/child mortality was rampant at the time, but….

George's wife and two children passed within a year of each other.

Charles Mathews wife died in child birth, his daughter who had his wife's name, died 6 months later.

Ray apparently liked to enjoy life. I think it’s good to celebrate life rather than focus on the losses we all face and experience.

Cool play on words. I wonder what Ray was like when he was alive.

Scenes in Black and White from Greensboro Md

More Fuji x100s goodness.  I went cruising about following my nose early today and came to Greensboro Maryland and stopped in a more or less abandoned industrial area and got these photos. The remind me of scenes in an old movie perhaps.

I thought the name was interesting and wondered what happened to the company. Photographically, I like the arrangements of the windows, door, signs, and pallets.
Garage doors and cement block make interesting patterns
I liked the shapes and repetition
