Just a little shot of Joe’s grave in the cemetery at Terlingua Ghost Town. I didn’t know him, but I liked the handful of candles, the tattered flag, and the scratched-concrete grave marker.

Well done, chairs.

My reader(s) who were around in 2013 may recall my earlier photograph from the church in the Terlingua ghost town. That image was one of the first ones I made where I thought maybe this photography gig might work out.

I hadn’t been back to the site since then and was eager to photograph the church again. Once inside, I decided nothing I could shoot of the whole space would be better than what I had already done, so I turned my eyes and my camera to the smaller things.

Go on – enter the church. Go on – approach the altar. Go on – let the silence speak to you. Go on.
