If you go down to the cemetery today...

Had a little visit to a cemetry in Nottingham today to get some atmospheric pictures as documentation of my costume for my one man show of A Christmas Carol. I was attempting to pose Victorian style amongst the gravestones (like you do) and had my camera setting on the self timer setting. I posed with a few gravestones and was crossing the main path when I saw a young woman coming in my direction. She looked friendly and had a Nikon camera with her so I asked her if she would be kind enough to take some pictures of me in my costume. Her name was Jenna and did a great job. Thanks Jenna!  She was in the graveyard to take some pictures of her own of graves of soldiers killed in the First World War. I hope that you remember my site name and enjoy seeing your work. :)





After this I went into the city and had some lunch at the Broadway cinema and hung around the backstreets of the Lace Market area and took some more photos before I went home.

Hi Phil
The last photo of you in the graveyard looks like you have wings. Nice photos.

How could I forget meeting such a wonderful and friendly person. It was a pleasure taking your pictures and thank you for the experience! Good luck with your show and keep in touch! :)

Ken: Cheers Ken, I'll have to check that out.

J:That's very sweet of you. I am on Facebook if you'd like to keep in touch. Thanks again for your friendliness and co-operation. :0)

The one of you sitting down makes you look like Ian Anderson from Jethro Tull. All you have to do now is get a flute and stand on one leg.

Excellent shots ... you'll get arrested hanging around cemeteries in funny clothes!!! Well at least you kept them on for your latest photoshoot!!!

That sepia's great. Nice photos.

I was thinking of the resemblance to Ian Anderson too ('cept I couldn't think of his name, just knew im as the Jethro Tull man). Like the sepia photo best.

Great photos.
How about some more of Nottingham, please ?!!

Nice pictures. I agree with Ken...they do look like over-sized wings at first glance.
