Shooting for book covers sometimes draws you to some unusual subjects, and this is one of them – spooky, some might say macabre memorials which lurk around various old buildings and always make a compelling subject.
First one on a Lensbaby with the plastic lens, toned in post-processing.
Next a remarkably fine carving of a skull – they really were ghoulish in the 1700’s! This is on the Zuiko 50mm f1.4 wide open, and displaying some very odd bokeh – it’s rather annoyingly distracting but never mind…
Finally a real horror of a monument – how sensibilities have changed over 250 years.
Thanks for looking – hope you like them (if you can like something like this!).
