With cemeteries whose age is counted in the hundreds of years, Marblehead is home to some very unique gravestones. My personal favorite is this simple one engraved with the lone word Mother that can be found at the Green Street cemetery. The gravestone is haunting for its simplicity and happens to lie in front of a maple tree. That combination made it an easy favorite to shoot and one that I’ve visited on a number of occasions for subtly different compositions.
I couldn’t think of a better image than this one of Mother’s grave to wish everyone a Happy Halloween. As a reminder, please drive very carefully tonight as kids of all ages will be wandering our streets in search of tricks and treats.
