All the new pandemic graves, 2

 

Another drone image from the cemetery, where the rough brown dirt, and a plywood cover, speak to the community’s pandemic losses. And to all the families whose dinner tables, holidays, plans, and memories have been forever altered.

All the new pandemic graves, 1

There were more new graves at this cemetery than I’d ever noticed before, surely a result of the 626 COVID deaths* in Lubbock.

I had a philosophical argument with myself over even making this image (and the two that will follow). It seemed intrusive in a way that my normal cemetery images don’t. But it also seemed historically important, also in a way that my regular cemetery images don’t.

History won.

Decorative Panel

This? Just another empty storefront in a small town downtown.

Botanical Confusion

So. Much. Confusion.

That seems sufficient

I really don’t think that I would want to stay in an RV in a cemetery more than three days, but evidently over-staying was enough of a problem that a sign was required.
