I shoot a lot of cemetaries. For heart-rending, technicolor boisterous displays, you just can’t beat a New Mexican cemetary on Easter, Day of the Dead or Christmas. I’ve made it to my favorite, the Nambe Church cemetary in Nambe, every Boxing Day for most of the last 20 years. I follow that up with New Year’s Day in Acoma. It seems to make the perfect emotional double-header.
I found this small, weathered cross tucked away in a far corner surrounded by tumbleweeds and scruffy dead plants. The new flowers shows that this lonely hidden grave hadn’t been forgotten.

Lazy cows amble in a field of spring wild flowers in the water color center of this pastel Vintage Easter Cross. Story Crosses were designed to showcase scenic views including pastoral scenes like this one. The well drawn carnations give the feel of looking through the card into another world. Charming, but I’m still not sure what cows have to do with Easter.

A watercolor angel flies towards 3 crosses on the hill in this Vintage Easter Story Cross. Vintage cards and labels are taped to all my walls, providing artistic and spiritual inspiration. This is one I found in high school.
