I went to the three historic cemeteries in Shippensburg today for a shoot in black & white, all of which we've visited on this blog before: Spring Hill Cemetery, the main burying place for the area; God's Acre on Prince St., which honors those who served in the military in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and the Civil War; and the Locust Grove Cemetery, which served as the only public cemetery open to African-Americans until late in the 20th Century. I kept to shooting in black & white as it seems to be the ideal medium for capturing graveyards; and I'm also staying with ISO 400 to try for the Kodak Tri-X 400 feel.
I took a lot of photos today. For this post I included the two best shots from each cemetery; if you want to see the best of the entire shoot, click here for the Picasa web album.
