George May Headstone Dedication Service
George May was a historian who lived in Evesham during the 19th Century, and who wrote "The Discriptive History of Evesham" in 1845. October 2012 saw the unveiling of a new headstone on his grave in the Unitarian Chapel cemetry, a joint project undertaken by Evesham Unitarians and the Vale of Evesham Historical Society. So how did I fit into this? Well, I was approached by the (then) chairman of the Historical Society, my father (the late) Mr John Kyte
This turned out of be one of the hardest photographic sessions I've done in some time; although it was a sunny day, the grave is on the west side of the cemetry, and with the unveiling taking place at around 3.30pm, the sun was against me for most of the session. This resulted in deploying the flashgun in the hope that it would reduce any shadows that may have been produced; on the whole these seems to have worked, although glare is slightly evident in some of the photographs.
