Photographer's Note

REPOSTED DUE TO PHOTO ROTATED AND ACTUALLY UPLOAD OF THE PROPER VERSION WITH BETTER WHITE COLOURS.

I didn’t think there would be anyone at the cemetery on such a nasty day, after a while father and son came, stayed for a while, said a prayer, left a branch from a Christmas tree on the grave, the grave that is a resting place for a one day old baby, probably a child of this man, a sibling of the boy, perhaps even his twin brother.

This was a last photo of the day for me, couldn’t take any afterwards, and at least for the time being anything taken on that day before this image just doesn’t matter to me.

Picture taken at the same cemetery as this one, just steps away


PS. I don’t believe I have intruded their privacy, they have pretty much walked into the area I was photographing, just had to turn a bit to include them in the photo, the photo is also taken with zoom extended to the maximum. I had visited the grave after they left (couldn’t help my curiosity), said my own prayers and went home.

Tip: for pictures taken at slow shutter speeds you can set the camera to burst mode, first image maybe blurry, the consecutive once should be better since no pressing of shutter is involved. This picture was taken with zoom fully extended at 1/25.
