I have been visiting grave yards and searching for headstones of my grandparents etc. I even have a scar from doing so, being I tripped over one of those end markers and landed on the ground. No broken bones, though, so I can keep going!
I was surprised, once, when I asked another family tree person if I could use her photo of a grave of a mutual kin, when she told me to go to Findagrave.com! I was surprised there was a place. They have compiled grave sites all over the world and you can go get a photo of your kin’s grave and even learn about their life, if anyone has posted information on it. The site has been a blessing to me in finding our ancestors. And, at least one, helped me figure out a tangled web of info I had for an ancestor. [of course, we need to ask permission to use a photo for it is the property of whoever posted it]
Volunteers take of the sites. You can also take photos of graves for someone in another part of the country by looking at the photo requests link maybe in Timbuktu. We did once, and it was neat to help someone we did not even know! One person thought that odd that I’d go to that trouble. I told them that maybe one day I’d need a photo from someone in Timbuktu!
OK, here are the lists (so far) of the cemeteries I’ve done.
