The Dead and the Undead, a Story of Restless Development

Click above to see this image larger.

It’s never too late to accessorize! Dead? Don’t let that hold you back. You look a bit ashen. How about a nice urn, traditional? We got slightly transparent urns too. Show ‘em what you’re made of!

The above photo is of Heritage Memorials, which used to be a store front attached to a Jeffersonian style gas station.

This being Charlottesville, it will likely be replaced with a much larger Jeffersonian style business of some sort. (Update: All gone now. Restless development swept Heritage Memorial aside.) Rest in pieces.
While writing this, I discovered that there are digital memorials now. You’ll need to bring your laptop to the gravesite.

Hey Ed,
Great postings! I have always been fascinated with tomb stones and church yards. I saw one once with the name "Winter" on it, sitting behind a monument works, and thought I'd return to photograph it in the winter time. Caption could be the "dead of winter" or some such. But when winter came, the stone was much for that idea... LOL! Thanks, Dave

The stone was missing! .... too much. You'd expect some stability in a grave yard.
I've done quite a few shots in graveyards, as you can tell. Nice a quiet, unless there's a funeral.
