    The grief at this and at another child's grave was palpable. Add to it the fact that the cemetery was in the middle of nowhere and it was heavy in the air.

    Here's a set of photos from the cemetery.

    Viewed the slideshow. Great series
    Seems like you're back on a CREATIVE roll
    How will the photos look if you did a second series,,,,, B&W moody/Noir
    The color set capturing the beauty of their life and the B&W afterlife
    or am I getting too whacked
    All the Best....Helen

    Maggie,
    I keep coming back to the one where the ground is all cracking...it is creepy but in a way that also keeps you looking.

    Thanks, guys!

    As for doing some in B&W, I saw waaaay too many B&W cemetery shots when I was hanging out with Goths. I'm just not going to go there. Time to plough different ground, so to speak. Nothing wrong with it, but it's not the right direction for me at this time.

    Hi Maggie
    Not trying to push the blk & white concept but I think you misunderstood what I had in mind.
    I TOTALLY AGREE RE; GOTH
    Its soooo TIRED & OLD HAT

    What I meant was a Blk & white series to complement your Beautiful color shots
    BUT more Elegant, Stylised, & Executed as in CINEMETOGRAPHY
    Two Films come to mind / Both CLASSICS and are in blk & white

    THE INNOCENTS / 1961 with acclaimed cinematographer & BAFTA winner Freddie Francis starring Deborah Kerr

    NIGHT OF THE HUNTER / 1955 Fritz Lang director starring Robert Mitchem & Shelley Winters

    Both Films deal w/ Childern and a Sustained Tone of DREAD & ATMOSPHERE
    which I think you brilliantly captured in your 'Child's Grave Cemetary Series'
    but could possibly be heightened another step in blk & white

    Cheers! Helen

    Excellent food for thought, Helen! Though I'm still not quite sure where I'd be going with it- could you elaborate or show me some photos along the lines you're thinking?

    Hi Maggie,

    I find the image you have posted in this thread the most powerful of the series.

    The composition has been thoughfully made and I get a sad, respectful feeling from viewing the image.

    Moving stuff, well done.

    Bob,
    Quite lovely the sienna & sand tones
    and the combination offsets Maggie's blues so beautifully
    Both soooo well done for such sad occasions
    Cheers! helen
