Sunlight Shining through

Several of the grave stones in this cemetery have been worn down by the elements over time. However I saw several from the 1800's and maybe even the 1700's. It makes me wonder what Newtown was like back in those days.

  1. Beautiful shot James. I love old cemeteries, such wonderful subject matter. The B&W is perfect for this. Great job of capturing the sun's rays peaking through that wonderful tree. Kat

  2. What a great shot of a really great place. So much texture ini this piece. The texture of the tree is especially gorgeous illuminated by the rays of the sun. I always think that area must have been like the movies The Scarlet Letter or The Village. Come to think of it, your photography always brings film to mind for me... Lights, Camera, Action!

  5. wow, look at those sun rays! Outstanding!! Old buildings alongside old cemeteries are so photogenic. I photographed an old cemetery at the Taos Pueblo this past week, in New Mexico. It is quite amazing and quite in need of some maintenance. But, I think it is meant to not be disturbed.

  8. Great shot, James - I agree that old cemeteries are so photogenic! The old stones have so much history and character and visually make all sorts of great angles and textures! Perfect for black and white. Have a a great week!

  11. There is a lot to see in this photo.

    If your series of B&W is to go to late October that says the end is near. I have enjoyed the series very much but am curious to know why "late October", and what comes next?

  13. Excellent, James - this image would not be nearly so effective in color. Sometimes the monochrome tells the story better than color, this is one of those times.

  15. I love this photo of the church and cemetary. The light adds another dimension, the hope of after life. Love it. Carla

  16. The obstacle of the old house is the design such as the face of the person.
    It seems to be time when the atmosphere was confined in a story.

    Thank you.
