The Golden Leaves of Autumn Dreams

5 Nov 2021 4:59PM   Views : 884 Unique : 469

If those who have passed have dreams, then where better than delightful garden cemeteries like Tyldesley. In a small area it has more of interest than much larger sites that have become open and photographically bland. It's one of the reasons I constantly return to Tyldesley Cemetery; there is always something to photograph. Today a short sequence of autumnal leaves, but, most importantly, of autumnal light. That wonderful transparency of the light, coupled with crisp blue skies, gives what Sue and I always described as an "Ektachrome sort of day", a very different look to our usual Kodachrome view of the world. As you can tell, we used to use film, back in the day when dinosaurs roamed the earth. At least, that is how it seems to 9-year-old Grandson Finn, who described the 1980s as "the olden days". He actually asked Sue if she had lived in a cave.......we aspired to a cave, but alas had to make do with a slight overhang. Smile

The Amazing Dalbeattie Museum Trust

This is a small but packed museum in Dalbeattie, Dumfries and Galloway. It covers a couple of floors in a corner shop location and is packed with artefacts, the bad news for us being that many of them are things that we have owned or used as youngste...

Golden Slumbers

There's an exhibitions of Egypt's Golden Mummies at Manchester Museum, and we went down to see it this afternoon. I travelled very light this time, in the end using just the Pentax MX-1 compact camera. The conditions were very dark and the exhibits l...

Great set of images and your right about these small church cemeteries. There is just something about that draws a photographer in, as your images shows.
