The Story

24 07 2015

I was on my way to the City Cemetery in downtown Raleigh to take pictures for my photo class this week. I thought I might find a story there. I had not been there before. But on the way to the cemetery, this photo op happened and I had my story photo for the class.

The Story. Used Lightoom to tone down the color. Used PSE to add the text on the front of the stone.

This is a monument to the Women of the Confederacy. It had been vandalized earlier in the week. I don’t know who the women are who are trying to remove the text. I added the begining text from the Declaration of Independence to the photo. Perhaps a much better way to get a message across? There are many statues around the grounds of the NC State Capital. I did get to the City Cemetery. You can see those photos on my flickr page.

I would have to guess that the three ladies are trying to clean up graffiti?
