Stanton, TX

November 11, 2009

I had Veteran’s Day off from work, so a photography friend of mine, Caleb, and I headed to Stanton, TX to check out an old convent and a cemetery.

First stop was the cemetery. There were lots of old gravestones dating back to the 1800s, and a few that were in German.

There was an area for infant/child graves back in the corner. Some had toy cars around the grave, and one even had a pair of shoes hung around the marker.

Next we headed to the Convent, which was just south of the cemetery. The gate on the backside was open, and there were no “No Trespassing” signs, so we thought it would be ok to go in.

It’s a shame that we weren’t able to go inside. The only photos we got of the inside were taken through broken windows.

From there, we drove around Stanton to see if anything else caught our eye. We stumbled upon this:


We probably spent 30 minutes just photographing this old truck.
