I think we are talking about choice (D) All Of The Above.

Frost heaving is one of the active ingredients in Slope Creep (at least at my latitude), as is "over-steepening of slope" most often caused by water saturation during periods of heavy rainfall, which causes instability of the weaker soil layers. The weakest components are what determine how steep a land form can stand without slumping, sliding, or collapsing in a landslide. Also, the weight of the extra water in the soil is also crucial. This reminds me that the gravestones are considerably heavy in many cases and will affect the soil stability in their immediate area. And any kind of internal collapse (like the rotting casket) could cause problems nearby at the surface, too.

Mr. Pugh, my professor for "Geological Hazards" would be proud of me remembering all this stuff he showed my class on our field trips! But I see variations of those things on the landscapes around me all the time.

As the cemetery dates back to the mid-1800s, there could be some of that as well.

The Ellisville Cemetery is located on a high rounded river bluff, the surface of which is prone to what geologists call "slope creep." Consequently, a considerable number of the old stones no longer stand straight.

I read that several years ago, but I don't think land-use practices have changed in those two places in ways that would change that balance much. One has to remember that a gigantic chunk of Colorado is east of the Rockies and consists of dry virtually treeless range land. Then in the mountains you have steep rocky slopes and areas above the treeline where there are few trees. New Jersey, by contrast, is extremely well watered, and, while it has some hills and low mountains, they would in most cases create refuges for trees not impediments to them. In New Jersey, anywhere you don't cut trees, they will be popping up and growing; you can't make such a blanket statement about Colorado. Some of New Jersey's older towns probably have enough mature trees in them to call them forests, if not wild forests. New Jersey is known as the Garden State. There are a lot of trees in that garden.

Old buildings like those reveal past farming practices, now often abandoned to row-crop-only farming. The near barn has a gigantic hay loft. Silos often meant being prepared to feed dairy cattle over winter. One of the smaller outbuildings looks like a poultry house. The older barn in the rear is obviously from the days farming with horses.

Unlikely that's the original farmhouse. Old farmhouses nearly always have much taller windows.

The snakes in my locale are almost exclusively constrictors and very beneficial, especially if you don't like being overrun with small rodents. Still people out fishing presume that non-venomous Northern Water Snakes are Water Moccasins. Or that non-venomous Fox Snakes are Timber Rattlers. Folks see a four-foot long Black Rat Snake and kill it with the garden hoe, and of course they we swear that it was eight feet long before they attacked it. Remember this maxim: Dead snakes get shorter. There are neighborhoods where everyone was having to go out and buy mouse traps a few weeks after doing in such an efficient mouser.

These busts remind me of a comic bit by Victor Borge, who, while holding his arm horizontally across his chest, said, "You know, Beethoven was only from here up . . . which was a great disappointment to Mrs. Beethoven."

Fisheye Fever Club -- Flaunt your fisheye photos!

You can change the kinds of fishy effects in two ways that I can think of:
1) How you point the lens;
2) How near or far you are from a principal subject in the frame.

If there is actually a more or less level horizon line, you can bend the middle of it up or down by raising or lowering the angle you are pointing the camera at it.

Getting close to the subject can make noses or foreheads or chins very large, with the rest of the person receding into smaller and smallerness. With people or inanimate objects you can adjust this effect by watching what you are getting in the viewfinder.

The more level you point the camera-with-fisheye lens and the farther away you keep central-frame main subjects, the less you have these effects. at least in the middle of the frame, meaning that if you cropped the middle out of the picture, it would be much less fishy.

Additionally, with a fisheye lens, any long straight vertical lines are going to bend a lot, but how, how much, or what way they bend can be adjusted by how close to the margins of the lens's view you place them.

Thanks! Considering that it might have been a mistake using the yellow filter--which seemed to make some of the shots on the roll look too contrasty rather than ferreting some blue sky patches out of the clouds as I had hoped--I did have to do a bit of pp with the scans that came back from Old School Photo Lab. I don't think I had to do a lot with this one. My main objective was simply to keep as much detail in the highlights and in the shadows as I could, while keeping some true black and some true white. I guess I got lucky with the middle tones. :)

It's the first test roll with this camera, which might put a bookmark in my adding to my small collection of rangefinder cameras, unless I run across something absolutely irresistible for a very, very low price. I'll try color film in it next.

Early 20th Century U.S. Mail delivery carriage. You'll notice that the powerplant for this vehicle is missing. Back when it was in use, it might have been found grazing in a nearby pasture.

You'd have trouble in central Illinois, where we can sometimes get 10 to 20 degrees below ZERO F. in some winters.
