|Ezra Alden, 1767, East Bridgewater, MA|
Here lies Buried
Mr. EZRA ALDEN
1767 In ye 36th
year of his age.
There are several stones in the Old Grave Yard in East Bridgewater, MA carved by Nathan Hayward. Many of them have unusually deep relief carving like that found on the Ezra Alden stone.
The lettering always looks so sharp in your photos. Do you use a mirror, or just the available light?
I have a mirror, but most of the "Gravestones of the Day" are pictures where I just happened to luck into natural light. I have lots of photos with bad light, but they are hardly worth it, so I try to come back when the light is better if I can.
