Day 653 It was really beautiful tonight after work. Clear skies, cool like a fall evening and the only thing I could think about was heading out for a few evening photos.
Close to Halloween, I thought a cemetery had potential. I’m not that familiar with local cemeteries, so we went to the only one I could think of.
It was already dark and the sign did say closed at dusk, but the gate was still open. Since it is one of the older cemeteries in town I thought maybe they left the gates open all night.
It was not just dark, but it was really dark underneath all of the trees. It certainly wasn’t my most successful venture out. Karen would shine the flash light on a head stone so that I could focus. I was doing three to five minute exposures and I was trying out the long-exposure noise reduction in the camera.
It worked well, but it took almost as long to process in camera as it did to take the photo. It was like I was shooting film, there was no looking at the screen.
That was horrifying.
As we were walking back to the car, fortunately I did park on the street, we laughed about the gates being locked.
We should not have laughed. We had been locked in the cemetery.
I don’t remember the last time I had to climb over a cyclone fence to get somewhere.
