    Okay, so on my birthday I got a Lensbaby 2.0 and had to run out to try it immediately. :mrgreen: As usual when I need to get somewhere of visual interest in a hurry, I headed out to Oakland Cemetery.

    The Lensbaby is fun, though it takes a bit of getting used to. I shot mostly at f5.6, with a couple of f4's here and there. Fun stuff! :)

    These were all shot with Tri X 400. This is the only print I've made so far. Some extra burning in around the edges.

    And these are just scans from the contact sheet, so excuse the poor quality. I kept the image size small so they wouldn't break apart.

    This was taken in what is called the "Eastern European Orthodox" section of the cemetery, where there are mainly Jewish families buried here.

    Another one from that section. She lost her head!

    Thanks for looking. I'll put a few more up in a bit. :)

    bwahahahaha, I was hoping you'd see these, Chiller! If you ever wandered into Oakland Cemetery, you might not come out for......days. ;) I'm happy you like them. Need to get the other ones posted.

    Thank you, Uncle Dan! :mrgreen:

    Becky: prepare to be hooked. ;) Advice: play with it a little while at home to get the feel of manuvering the lens before you head out.

    Photogal, I blame Karalee for this, too. :lol: She put up some awesome pictures and I knew there was no turning back for me!

    Great shots Terri. That first one makes your head spin! I'm gonna have to get one, just for the holga-esque rawness. Is it easy to see through and everything?
