Golden Headstones

Old Headstones, First Baptist Church, Charleston, SC  © Doug Hickok  All Rights Reserved



Early morning light slants between the narrow gaps of houses into an ancient churchyard, illuminating a row of old headstones. The churchyard belongs to the First Baptist Church, established in Charleston in 1689.

  2. The light is amazing Doug. Much better than the grey tones of most headstones.

  16. That early morning, golden light is quite beautiful and gives a light touch to a sombre subject. And I wouldn't mind betting that Clara Ann has never received such wide spread and international attention before.
