Sacred

I noted last weekend that both Fishyfish arcade and Natalie Smart had both posted cemetery images as I had been shooting the same subject that day… How strange I thought.

Fishy did suggest “It’s the prophecy. It’s finally coming to pass!” maybe he’s right, we’re all doomed.

Anyway, shot at St Peter & St Paul’s Church, Borden, England. Some lovely old gravestones at this church cemetery, some are very weathered. This particular one is leaning around 30 degrees and so made the image easier to compose with the light and background.

Taken on my Leica M4-2 with the Summicron 50mm f/2 lens on AGFA Vista 200 film, which I have now change to black and white. I wasn’t happy with the colour version and feel the monochrome has more impact.

 

The Governor’s

Three years ago I started taking shots of dogs, inspired by the images of dogs taken by Photographer Elliott Erwitt. My wife and I came across these two ladies with their dogs on Sheerness seafront, England.
These two feisty Chihuahuas gave me a stand off, as they didn’t like the me or the camera! Later after processing I hadn’t noticed their boy who was on the wall bored waiting as we all chatted.
