A shooting assignment...


One of my twins (Katie) is taking photography in high school and had an assignment to shoot at a very old local cemetery (Laurel Hill Cemetery), so I figured that I would shoot as well. This was our first time shooting together and it was fun.

Here are a few of the images from that day.

The one (image) I found most amusing (if you can use that word when talking about cemetery images) was the one of the gate posts on a small family plot, my thought (well, more of a question really) was, at this point in the afterlife does one really need directions?

I like the images in BW. I bet Katie was thrilled to go out shooting with you (and I bet the opposite was true as well)

Haven't thought about shooting at that location...might have to see what interesting things can be found there one day. Thanks for the idea!

I shot a whole series of photos in a cemetery in Salem, NH after the big snowstorm we had this winter and got a lot of positive feedback from it. I titled it "Winter in the Cemetery" I am now thinking about doing a small hard cover photo book "Seasons of a Cemetery" and will shoot the different seasons.

Nice, that is a really great place to photograph many opportunities to do different things; when the flowers bloom they are everywhere!
