These images were shot at Oak Grove Cemetery, Norfolk, Virginia, mid-day, the worst time of day to shoot. However, that is when I could slip away. I intend to return soon -late afternoon- to get some really great light and beautiful images.
This reminded me of Tony Kushner's Pulitzer Prize winning play
Angel missing hands
Angel with Cross
Littlest Angel -oil filter
Iron and Ivy
There are many beautiful old churches, cathedrals, and temples in Norfolk. This is one of my favorites – The Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. Happy Easter.
The Virgin Mary and cherubs -black & white
Boat with tug- oil filter
Reflection-Stars and Stripes
Red Boat with tug
Two columns -oil filter
These are just some random scenes from downtown. The boat was shot from across the river in Old Town Portsmouth. Sometimes, a not so perfect exposure can be rescued by employing a special filter during post-processing. In the case of the oil filter, the print can be made to look like an oil painting (sort of). It’s fun playing with these filters.
