Unique Gravestones for Stock Images

Old cemeteries contain some interesting stone carvings. Its worth a walk through a promising graveyard to see what surprises it may contain. A carving of a lamb. A human arm, aiming skyward, holding a torch like the Statue of Liberty. Or, in this case, a carven book. While the intended symbolism is likely to be Biblical, the stock photo value of such an image is high, since web designers and digital publishers are always searching for new images to illustrate such ideas as the demise of printed books, or e-books, which don’t have much physical presence, or many other such subjects. Keywords such as #StoneBook, #MarbleBook, #DeathOfTheBook, or even #PetrifiedBook would be good starting points for marketing such an image.
