Jesús Vega, redone
Sometimes amazing, unbelievable things happen.
In early 2013, I visited the cemetery in Terlingua and made this image of the grave marker for Jesús Vega:
Years passed (eight of them) and I was once again in the Terlingua cemetery. I’d made my way all the way around, almost, when I saw something that was nearly unbelievable:
Terlingua Ghost Town, Texas
photographed 1.20.2013 and 3.25.2021

I took a picture of that cross too. A couple of years ago, we were back and it had fallen. I felt bad for Sr Vega and I am glad someone fixed it for him.
Yes, I had those very same feelings. It’s nice that you and I share both experiences with this marker.
