Mt. Canaan Missionary Baptist Church
Located just a couple of miles from our home, Mt. Canaan Missionary Baptist Church is comprised primarily of African-Americans. Behind the church is a cemetery, seen in the second photograph. Checking the grave markers, it would appear this church and cemetery has been in this location at least since the mid-1940s.
The final picture is a closeup of some flowers left at one of the grave sites.
"Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again." — Henri Cartier-Bresson
