While we were out in the country this weekend doing the Knox County Christmas Bird Count we came upon this old cemetery up on a knoll. I find old cemeteries intersting. We often find small cemeteries here and there. The old tombstones are often cockeyed and people don't always take care of them when the cemeteries are old. I often wonder what has happened to the people's families that are interned in these old cemeteries.
Now I don't want to make anyone gloomy but I just had to try to capture the gray day and the lonesome feeling that these places give me sometimes. Maybe because my Grandparents lived by a cemetery years ago and I played amongst the tombstones so they don't bother me. Actually they remind me of my Grandparents who are no longer alive. They remind me that I had to get home before dark when we visited or I had to walk through the cemetery in the dark. I didn't like that.
Thanks for strolling down memory lane with me. I hope I didn't creep out anyone. My DB was asking why I would paint such a picture. Difficult to say.
