I'm glad I thought about this cemetery today because it was such a peaceful and calming place considering it is near industrial areas. I was happy to see flowers growing and fake flowers in another cemetery, but the sweetest thing and saddest thing I saw today were a child's toy adorned gravesite. I had to stand there for a few minutes and take it all in before I took a picture of this wonderland. There were all kinds of toys for this child.
While I am in the habit of taking pictures of gravestones, I remember having a conversation with this lady about taking pics of headstones. She thought it desecrated the remains that were there and I should never do it. In this same conversation with the same lady, she thought it was weird that there are people (we were speaking of some basket ladies downtown Charleston) that don't like their pic being taken because it captures some of their soul. I will continue to take pictures of headstones that do not carry souls in them, and I will continue to not take pics of people who do not want their pic taken!!
