Grave Site in Lafayette Cemetery No 2 - New Orleans

Grave Site in Lafayette Cemetery No 2 - New Orleans

For some macabre reason I can’t explain I have a fascination with cemeteries in New Orleans. If you followed this blog even remotely you will have seen several of my shots from the Crescent City’s “Cities of the Dead”. While roaming about the Lafayette Cemetery No. 2 I was far to the southwest corner of the cemetery and, as I often do, looking at names and dates when much to my surprise I came across my last name on a grave. I suppose it was a matter of time before it happened and there may be others to find with the family name.

I should have made a rubbing of this one but didn’t have the needed paper and crayons – my rubbing supplies like my Holga are oft times simply forgotten as I pack to go shoot.
