Sorry it’s been ages between posts, but there have been various ongoing issues in the Cloudy household that meant that my passion for photography had to be put on the back burner for a while. However, now that Spring is here I am bouncing back with vengeance and intend to make more posts than ever.
Yesterday was the first day of Spring and what better way to celebrate the season than to take a wander in the beautiful environment of Nunhead Cemetery. Bluebells, Snowdrops and Daffodils bloomed in abundance, the trees were beginning to bud and although still very cold, everything was looking greener. And of course all the wonderful monuments, catacombs and angels looked as magnificent as ever in their decaying glory.
To really capture the environment I chose to use my Voightlander Heliar 15mm on the Leica Standard so that I could emphasise many of the smaller details that are often overlooked when carrying standard + mm lenses. I also chose my Zenit C with the amazing Helios lens. No lens ever made since can compete with the Helios’s over the top swirly whirly Bokeh that can really enhance graveyard spooky shots. I love my Zenit C/Helios set up so much.
