Obviously these flowers have been here for awhile, but they were still put there within the least few months at most. I always find it intriguing that people still put flowers on a grave as old as this.
I had hoped that the background would be blown out a little more at this aperture, but I'm still fairly pleased with the shot.
I didn't notice until I checked the EXIF tag on the picture that I shot this one at ISO200. I guess I set it for some indoor shots the other day and forgot to set it back to 100. I wondered why the camera seemed to be shooting a little faster than normal this afternoon. This one was shot at f/1.8, 1/1000th of a second. Once I got this one onto my computer I rotated it about 1` clockwise, and cropped it slightly to remove a couple of elements that I couldn't quite get out of the frame when I shot it. Finally I used red-green calculations to convert it to black and white, and then sharpened it a bit.
