Salem Primitive Baptist Church

Salem Primitive Baptist Church (and cemetery, not shown in this picture), Pickens County, Alabama.


I hate that I lopped off the back of this quaint church, but it was a very quick snap since four large dogs were charging across the gravel road toward me. I paused for a couple of seconds, thinking that I would really like to take another picture and that surely the dogs would recognize me as a dog-lover. I decided, though, that I probably shouldn't trust the dogs to believe me or to read my "I care for animals" license plate. So I headed for the gated cemetery and shut the gate behind me. Another frustrating thing about this picture is that looking at it reminds me that I had no idea there was a Find-a-Grave photo request for a grave in this cemetery until I got home (many miles away). I stumbled upon this church and cemetery while lost on gravel roads looking for another cemetery.

    Maybe you should consider carrying a few steaks with you on your travels to fend off the locals! It's a nice photo and the sky is gorgeous .
