Year In Pictures: 2010/03/30

It was cloudy, grey and windy today - perfect weather for trudging through an ancient graveyard. atara picked me up at work and we drove home by way of Lockport, stopping at the old church along the way to snag a few pictures.

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.
