Went out for a walk with the dog earlier ..came across a cemetery .. weather awful grey, drizzling, flat lighting ..but still got a few shots in

Day 8 17th Nov 2013

This is the grave of the Vicar from the church .
its separate from the others and a fair bit bigger

20131117-angel1.jpg


Two graves side by side .. both belong to children, one was 4 months the other 2yrs 6 months unsure if they were sisters as only one had parents names on it ,still so sad
I edited out the name of the child ..these headstones/angels are only about 2 feet high including base

I did quite a few indoor macro/close-up type shots in my first 365 when I ran out of time during the day.
If you haven't already got it, off camera lighting helps too.

Good luck!

The couch potato shot made me chuckle.

The Angel watching over the graves is a very nice shot. The saturation of the moss and fogginess give the image a timeless feeling. The composition is also nice with her turned to the side and the blurry bouquet on the right balancing the heaviness of the monument.
