Foto Friday: SOOC (straight out of the camera)

This week's suggested theme over at the Household 6 Diva is a photo you've taken that comes straight out of your camera (which means no editing has been done).  I had a couple of photos this week that actually didn't require much tweaking (yay for figuring out correct exposure!), so I decided to go with this one:


I know it may seem like an unusual choice, but I was really taken with the unique carving of this beautiful headstone. The inscription reads: "The Grave of/ELISABETH MOSS/who died on the 2nd of/December A.D. 1834/aged 70 years." There are a handful of other headstones in this cemetery carved by the same hand--I can't help but wonder what influenced his distinctive style. The headstone is located in Robinson Run Cemetery in South Fayette Township, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, which is about 10 minutes from where I grew up (it's also where my grandmother was buried this Wednesday).

That is pretty amazing !! I once stumbled upon an old coal mining graveyard that was off the side of a highway in a completely overgrown hill. Some really amazing sites there.

I love old graveyards! The Squid is on funeral detail and we go with him all over the area. My favorite is an old greek cemetary. It was so beautiful. This picture is amazing!

Hi L - thanks for visiting my blog and commenting. Aren't cemeteries somewhat peaceful, and they make for very interesting photos. Nice shot!

Awesome capture, L.! There's something about cemetries that's quite compelling.

Happy Saturday!

What a great SOOC shot. There are tons of old graveyards here around us that are full of those old & very interesting headstones. Always captures my interest.

Thanks for stopping by!

I think old headstones are fascinating. I am glad to see someone else intrigued by them.

That's brillant - I'm glad I've met someone who loves to walk around old cemetaries. Me and my hubby do it all of the time and wonder what the person was like behind the name.

Thanks for visiting my blog on Friday - as you can see I am late in getting to reply.
