Captain Jones’ Leg, New Hampshire
Large format, taken at 12:34 p. m. on October 6, 2007. In a small town in New Hampshire there is a very old graveyard where this grave marker is found. I looked around and did not see a marker indicating that the rest of Capt. Jones is there but there were others named Jones from about that time period nearby. The story I heard is that Capt. Jones lost his leg, knew he would miss it, and wanted to be sure it was in heaven when he got there. The exposure was ½ second at f/32.7 on Agfapan APX 100 film. 100607-07B
