Photo-a-Day (Monday, 5th August, 2013)
Lovely picture Andrew if a little somber....being in a church yard....but nevertheless it has its own appeal....cheers!!!
that's a great photo. I love graveyards . the sun just catching the cross really makes the picture.
Went to this church a couple of months ago to a christening. What a miserable bugger the priest is...Told the kids off for talking.
brilliant picture Andrew,dont usually like this thrme but this is a clever one especially with the cross ......love the clouds.Well done.
Nice example of contre jour!
Is that the opposite to backlight Nev?
Very nice image Andrew. I too like cemeteries as they hold so much of past lives, stories to be unravelled. Roy, Contre Jour and Backlight are pretty much the same thing. Both involve shooting into the light, however backlight tends to be a little more subtle to create a rim light around the subject, whereas Contre Jour can produce very strong silhouettes.
Great photo. Certainly makes you think about living and what a short time we have on earth.
You spend longer dead than alive.
Lovely shot mate :)
Given that the matter of our bodies gets recycled, Garry, that's not true.
Good on the priest for ticking of the kids. Children sould be seen and not heard. Discipline is sadly lacking these days.
Sorry Lynne, normally at a christening at which there is usually more than one child being christened and a 'mixed' congregation, the Rector, Vicar, Priest, whatever, would turn a blind eye to the noise of children unless of course they were screaming the place down, i have yet to attend a quiet christening.It would be interesting to have Rev Long's take on this subject.
Lynne with that sort of Victorian attitude no wonder no ones going to the church these days..I've been to christenings in church where the vicar has encouraged the children to walk around.
An interesting slant on the subject matter; it makes for a striking image. ....Thanks, Andrew.
Lynne,were you never a child? Get a life.
.Are vandals still a problem, i see a couple of head stones on a tilt
