Phantasmagoria

ND – Dark, Chilly, Blue

One sunny day late last year…
…I dropped Mrs ND’s parents off at a local airport and used the weather, my freedom for the rest of the day and my location to pop into Nottingham and have a proper look around.

I ended up walking through a huge but deserted (by living things, well, people) cemetery close to the city centre. Looking through the viewfinder at this scene, I imagined it in Black and White and the up-tempo goth tones from The Damned’s finest album sprang to mind.

Grimly Fiendish indeed!

Don’t get too spooked, BOO!

About nakedigit

I have legs and a camera. I also occasionally use a passport. The camera with my brightest lenses can almost (almost) see in the dark. So the only thing stopping me from putting it all together regardless of where and when i am is, well, me really! However, when i don't completely muck it up the results may end up here on this blog and also my Flickr page. I now Twitter and a website is coming... ND August 2010

  1. That’s a lovely photograph. I don’t know why but I always enjoy photographs of graveyards. It doesn’t matter if they’re spooky, serene, or moving. They always really get to me.

      Thanks very much Matt.
      The full size image (this is just a heavily shrunk JPG) has quite a bit of detail in it and looks quite nice (i think) at full size.
      One of the things I like about photographing such places is that you can spend some time setting up a shot without lots of crowds or other distractions
      getting in the way!

      Shot with a Nikon D700, I really quite liked it in colour actually, but wanted to go a little more monotone, and pulled it back very slightly fromm absolute B&W with a very subtle sepia tint that’s barely noticeable.

      Cheers, ND 🙂
