Collision Course

Maybe you didn’t know that I got my start as a photographer when I spent a decade shooting roadside crosses. I tried to stop at as many as I could and then, one day, I was done. I still notice them but rarely stop. This one, though, caught my attention the other morning.

PS: The only place the roadside cross work currently exists is on this old blog.

Death’s Shadow

Those four headstones are huddled together under three trees, living out their time in the shade.

Mr. Leatherwood’s Hill

My standby Roads of Texas book indicated a cemetery along this county road. And sure enough, there it was. There were probably fewer than 100 marked graves, a handful of trees, and a burst of yellow flowers. And a lot of sky.
