celtic crosses and concrete angels

Yay, made it to the middle of the week. But I'm really looking forward to the weekend.
This apartment looks like a coven of banshee threw a party or sacrificed something in here!!!

I like shooting tombstones. I find them challenging and fascinating. I'm still trying to find the right 'look' to my images. I pour over other people's shoots over at mourning_souls with envy when I see some of the pictures they take, their composition, their lighting conditions and the whole feel they get from their pictures.
These aren't anything like those! These are all shot against a brilliant blue sky in dazzling sunshine and snow. But if you'd like to stroll through a cemetery with me,

These first few are of a few of the concrete angels I shot

I didn't know that there were such a variety of celtic cross knots

I wanted to try and get a different 'mood' from the above cross by converting into a black & white

The remaining images are just an assortment of more of the same

Oh, this is Sir Wilfred Laurier's tomb (Canada's 9th Priminister from 1896 - 1911) (He wasn't the crazy one who talked to his dog about national issues)

Another attempt at 'mood' - first the original, followed by the desaturated version. Which is better?

I'll apologize now for this being a photo heavy post.
