McGowan Road and Friendship Cemetery photos

Sunday, October 4th, 2009

Sarah and I went for a drive out McGowan Road, where I have done some cycling, so we could do some photography. I decided going into it that this would be a fully manual, black and white outing. I brought my DSLR, and while it doesn’t have a B&W feature, as soon as I got home, I had my computer convert my photos to B&W before I even looked at them. I attempted to capture the overcast autumnal evening vibe that we were feeling. Tricky, without color, but I think it worked. First, here are some nature shots, and a couple of my wife.

After we had done some nature shots, we decided to head over to Friendship Cemetery, which I had passed, but I had not stopped to explore it. We found some very old gravestones, some of which had eroded to the point that you couldn’t make out the markings on them.

This next one is creepy (Sarah J. being my wife’s name) — seeing it creeped us out but I think my photo made it worse.

    B&W adds a special touch to these nice pictures, especially given the “subjects”. How did they look in color, I am just curious!

    Peace 🙂

    Thanks, Chandra. Since it was overcast and rather dark, the colors mostly looked pretty muted anyway. Some of the nature shots did have a bit of a warm tone to them, which was pleasant, but in others, the colors looked odd. That is partially because I intentionally shot most of these very dark — I had a specific B&W tone in mind.
