If anyone recognizes this graveyard, please give me details about it's location and name. As far as I can recall, it was in the vicinity of All Saint's Catholic Cemetery in Des Plaines. There were a lot of Germanic names and there was an old, white church house on the grounds by the road.

Cemetery Girls | By Daryl "Darko" Barnett | Blurb

Blurb has a "People's Choice Award" for the contestants in their Photography Book Now contest. I don't think the prize is much more than a pretty certificate written on with a quill, but still, it's a little bit of notoriety. I'd be honored if you'd vote for my book. You only get to vote for one book, one time only.
