Happy, Smiling at Walthamstow Queens Road Cemetery, London, UK.

Hendon Crematorium, North London, UK.

What better way to spend a rain sloshed Sunday than slithering about Hendon Crematorium with my macro lens? I haven’t got a good collection of graveside detail so far, I mean a real ‘close-up’. So today I concentrated on taking tight shots and spent time looking for details that really stood out – ornaments, flowers (both real and not), cracks, chips, growths and grooves. Here follows an establishing shot of the lovely gothic Old English signage, plus a few of my favourites from today…

This is the last photo I took and my lens was pretty smudged up by that point.

The following have been so kind as to mention me in or link me from their blogs. It’s only right that I do the same in return, especially because all of the blogs below are excellent resources for grave minded folk.
