The Paul Revere, huh? Impressive stuff there Jay! Love the historical aspect we're moving toward....

Yup...

This is his marker but I don't find the image particularly compelling aside from the "resident":

And one other grave I shot that had an appropriate addition:

Copied from a site about the grave pictured below.

This is the grave of Johnny Morehouse and--according to legend--his dog, a pair who are Woodland's most famous ghostly residents. The story might be rooted in nothing more than an unusual tombstone, but this is what they say: Johnny fell into the Miami & Erie canal and froze to death, despite his faithful dog's efforts to pull him out. After he was buried, the dog laid on his gravesite and wouldn't be moved. Eventually it died from starvation and sadness. A special stone was made in 1861 to commemorate Johnny's dog's devotion. People leave toys, candy, and other trinkets on the stone--a ritual the cemetery management tolerates, as you can tell from the photo above.
Now they say that Johnny and his dog, reunited beyond the grave, roam the cemetery after hours. Barking is heard in the vicinity of the grave, and the two of them are spotted sometimes inside the perimeter fence. If the years I've heard are correct, then Johnny was about five years old when he died. So watch for a little boy and his pet dog.

Oh yeah, Woodland Cemetery, Dayton, Ohio

Interesting comment there.
You've stated and shown that anyone can take a compelling picture if the subject is compelling enough. The more pictures I take, the more I realise that most people don't give a hoot about style and skill in taking the picture....all they want is something interesting to look at.

Apart from the ghost story, I wouldn't be at all surprised if the above is true. Dogs can display incredible affection, devotion and attachment to humans.
I love 'em!

Thanks for submitting.

Hey there Creepy Crawler (GREAT user-name!) thanks for adding. Some really interesting shots you've posted. Just a tiny wee bit of C&C....watch your focus - in this one ^^^ you've focused on the grass to the side of the grave-stone!

Maybe choosing a slightly smaller aperture would've done the trick...and using a slower shutter-speed should be ok, after all, your subject shouldn't be moving!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you I got my camera 8 months ago and really didn't do much with it. And all of the sudden I got bit by the photo bug so I don't know anything So all the help you can offer is great.

Ah-hah! Well, welcome to the insane world of taking pictures and wanting to spend FAR TOO MUCH MONEY on lenses and gear we don't really need!
;)

There are a LOT of really great people on here to help with anything to do with photography. We're (mostly) all still learning, so ask away - after searching for existing threads - regarding any aspect of photography, and plenty of guys 'n' girls will give constructive criticism.
:D

@CDickey: Beautiful, haunting image. The flowers are an incredible and unexpected surprise in the regimented pattern of the stones. The PP suits the mood perfectly.

@Eagle: Loved the Johnny Morehouse story. The gifts left on the stone by visitors made me remember these graves, not too far away from where they became legends in life:

01

02 - The things they bring to the Bambino:

Billy Martin's grave is only a couple hundred feet away from Ruth's. On his stone, someone left a baseball on which they had written Billy a lengthy plea to help cure an illness.

Lou Gehrig's grave is at a different cemetery just south of here off the same road. Pic removed from post because I'm pretty sure I didn't take it.

@Skygod44: Thanks for the suggestion on image size. I made the long sides 800 instead of 1024 - does this work better or should I go even smaller?

I agree. Excellent, aren't they.

That's perfect! Fits on all four different sized screens I use regularly :D
