How about photos? Earlier this month DH and I made a very fast trip to
Apache Creek, New Mexico...it is a tiny dot on a map. One of the few things in Apache Creek is an old country cemetery. According to Wikipedia the cemetery dates from the 1900s through 1960's...which is incorrect information. There are graves from the 1800s...and the purpose of the trip was to bury DH's uncle. The cemetery is still in use...it is one of those old country cemeteries where the family digs the grave...and buries the family member.
And that story gets us to this post...while the men folk were taking care of the grave, I walked around the cemetery taking pictures...remember, I do genealogy and family history and find old cemeteries fascinating. While taking photos of the family headstones, I also took some "texture" photos...just some pics that have interesting texture...you know "artsy" stuff.
You might be able to make out the old fence amongst the tree trunks...the fences
are around some old graves, and the trees have grown around them. There is sage green moss and lichen growing on the old post...
I love all the textures on this photo...the weathered fence post, the rusted wire and nails and the lichen.
