Any volunteer gravestone photographers here?

Dabbling in genealogy a few years ago, I came upon photographs of my great-great-grandparents' gravestones (in London) on the Internet. I was grateful to the person, unknown to me, who took the time to photograph them, and that got me started volunteering to do the same thing here.

I work through raogk.org (Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness) and FindAGrave.com. I'm developing too big a backlog of requests (from people in other parts of the country and beyond) since I've had to take a paying job again, but I really love photographing the gravestones. Old cemeteries are such peaceful places, and I feel I'm fulfilling the original intent of the stones: to acknowledge the people they honor.

Anyone else doing this?
