I shot these images of Vick Cemetery’s central monument one year ago. It was a whole, hot, disrespectful mess.
But here was the monument earlier this month, on the morning of our Reconsecration ceremony. Hats off to the Cemetery Commission’s grounds crew, who lopped, chopped, yanked, swept, edged, power-washed, and mulched this area to decency earlier this year.
