Hart Island

I was so impressed with this article in the New York Times about Hart Island I was inspired to upload some pictures I took when I visited the Island years ago. Hart Island is the home of New York’s Potter’s field.

These aren’t my favorite shots, although I do like them, but I don’t have decent copies of my two favorites. I don’t have the energy to find the negatives right now to make them. Someday. Maybe. I wasn’t using a good camera, but the low-res/soft focus works in the subject’s favor.
