Southern Gothic

Hey, y'all. I just got back from yet another trip (the last one of the summer, thank dogness -- I'm tired of the road). This one was a mission to take my mother-in-law's ashes to her hometown in Dade City, Florida, where we met up with family and friends to say goodbye. It was a bittersweet occasion. Saying goodbye is often hard, but getting together with family -- especially those we don't get to see very often -- is always a treat.

From there, we went on to Anna Maria Island, on Florida's west coast, for a few days of R&R before heading back here to Chattanooga, where the fall semester is poised to begin. I just looked over the week's photos and I think I got a good number of really nice shots (my compact camera is working out so well, I'm not sure I'll ever go back to using my big DSLR on a regular basis!). Here's one, from the Mt. Zion Cemetery (est. 1871), one of two cemeteries we visited in Dade City. I'll be rolling out some others in the coming days...
