A Graveyard View

The historic Moravian Graveyard in Old Salem, North Carolina has row after row of grave sites running in parallel lines, and when viewed from a panoramic perspective in black and white, makes for an interesting photo composition. The Salem congregation was established in 1772 and it was a Moravian “settlement congregation,” where residents of the community were expected to be members in good standing of the church. There was no civil government of mayor and board of aldermen, as we are accustomed to today.
