Yep, sounds a bit morbid but really isn’t.

I can’t remember why I decided to join up to Find A Grave website, but it’s interesting finding out about cemeteries in the area and actually visiting some.

So far, I’ve taken photos (for requests) at Catherine Hill Bay and also at Bethshan Cemetery at Wyee. The Bethshan is pretty much invisible from the road, but it’s only quite small.

The photos I’ve taken so far have been taken using the ipad or iphone, but I think I’d rather use my digital camera, if only for more control on the photo. I may even get myself a tripod.

As I suspected, it makes a huge difference about the time of day for getting decent light, especially for the older headstones in bad condition. Shade from surrounding trees makes some shots tricky too. Interesting though.
