Stones In Color

Most of the time I use Black and White for my walks around the cemeteries. Personally I think shades and contrasts make for a more interesting image there.

However, in some shots the details are cleaner and more obvious in color.

Each of these photographs is very detailed. It’s the nature of crowded old location.

I finished the images here using several different methods. Not something I like to do in color, there’s no consistency to the group.

In this case the images were completed over the course of a few weeks. Hot and time spent indoors finishing images with no thought as to when they would be published.

So I present a ‘hodge podge’ of photos from a days walk.

Cemetery Across The Lagoon

A marsh feeds this lagoon in the Magnolia Cemetery outside Charleston.

Magnolia started life as the Umbra plantation, became a park style cemetery in 1850 (with this lagoon), then the Civil War brought in hundreds of military casualties. Parts of Magnolia became a large southern military cemetery.
