On the East side of the Prospect Hill Cemetary in Elkhorn Nebraska, was a slight embankment thick with trees, brush, trash of all kinds and this, an abandoned grave marker made ofiron or some sort of heavy metal, forI could not hardly move it, I wanted to make it a bit more upright and straight for a good photograph, but I soon gave up on that undertaking, and decided to shoot it as it stood. I wnt back up to the cemetary and tried to find a marker for the name Stout, but could find none. I wondered what had happened to the departed soul for whom this marker stood?, What had happened that the marker should become abandoned and find its way so far from the rest of the Cemetary? It had no other information on the heavy marker, perhaps I had missed its replacement, regardless, it was a shame to find such an object in the midst of trash and downed trees.
