Shadow Shot Sunday #107: Ancestral Shadows

San Antonio National Cemetery
San Antonio, TX

Just a bit late for Memorial Day. My husband's great-great-grandfather, William Jackson Locke, who fought in the Civil War, is buried here (that's his grave in the foreground, on the right). In the background, you can see the Tower of the Americas, one of the more modern landmarks in downtown San Antonio.

Shadow Shot Sunday is a weekly photo meme hosted by Hey Harriet. To see many, many more shadow shots or to contribute some yourself, head on over to her blog.

  1. Nice Shadows! We love going to old cemetaries - there is so much history to be discovered there!

  2. It's good to be reminded of the sacrifices made on days other than holidays. I like the way you've captured the shadow of the tree among the headstones.

Welcome to Joysweb! And thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors. From time to time, I might have to moderate comments - I know that's not very hospitable, so I try to do it only on posts that are more than a few days old. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Also, please note that while I appreciate blog awards, I don't play award tag games. I think you all deserve awards!
