For a long time I had toyed with the idea of visiting a local cemetery to take some photos. I recently visited the Glenwood Cemetery close to downtown Houston with my friend David Morefield. I must say I surprised by the experience. From a photography standpoint, there are so many things to shoot. The angles, lines, perspective, light and more make it a great place to practice and experiment. I had almost expected that.
But what I didn’t expect was the feeling of history as we walked about and read the inscriptions. The stories they told and those that we interpreted from dates and more made for an interesting afternoon. The rolling hills and the variety of monuments and stones made it a walk through Houston’s history.
