Lost Souls: dltphoto

Not that I have any morbid pleasure of death but I have always had a bit of a thing for shooting in graveyards. Because I thought it odd I have never really published anything about it, or that I want to upset people incase I intrude on someone's afterlife beliefs.
However I found a grave site that interested me. I didn't actually walk on to the site itself, I walked around the fenced area to respect the proprietors of the land.
Anyways, this one had a really distinct selection of headstones ( mostly made from wood), some extremely simply wooden ones and some more elaborate. Creatively its interesting and I wonder if the higher quality headstones reflect wealth and stature? and the opposite for the weathered basic headstones?

Camera's used : Nikon D200, Nikon 1 V1, Olympus Tough TG-850 and Sigma DP1s

Some Addictions are Tough to Break :dltphoto

So I have come across my new addiction. It's kind of like when you first get that fisheye lens you always wanted. You've dreamed of all the crazy things you're going to shoot with it, then after a few weeks you realise that damn it's cool but then the cool drug wears off. Your worst fear. They love has dried up and you have lost the ability to creatively use it or that you have just about "done" everything you think you can do with it. You retire it to the shelf, it gathers dust until your next creative fisheye dream.

Well I mentioned about the Olympus Tough TG-850 I acquired, I have had the same "fisheye" experience.
I suggested I wasn't going to use it for everything, but well, I lied. It's so addictive. Especially for sky images. It's adds mustard to your hotdog, it's the rum to your coke. It's the filter for your art.

It's simpler in Black & White :dltphoto

Once upon a time everyone's images where pretty much in black and white, even TV's where once only black and white also. Sometimes its nice to step backwards, which is also why I used the Sigma DP1s ( the stigma) since it's like stepping back in time because it's sooooooo slow.
