Announcing a new Meetup for Cape Ann Photography Excursion (CAPE) Group!

What: Mount Auburn Cemetery

When: November 15,[masked]:00 PM

Fee: $1.00 per person

Mount Auburn Cemetery
580 Mt Auburn St
Cambridge, MA 02138

I've decided to do an impromptu shoot at Mount Auburn Cemetery this Sunday, weather permitting, and thought members of the CAPE Group may be interested in joining me!

As a side note... Occasionally I volunteer to visit area cemeteries to find, and photograph, headstones for families in need of genealogy information. It's somewhat like a scavenger hunt smile! If anyone has an interest in learning more about this, please visit the Find a Grave site for more information. There are currently 17 people looking for headstone photos in Mount Auburn Cemetery. I'll have the full list with me on Sunday if anyone is interested in hunting along too.
