Graveyard Angel

I have taken many pictures of graveyard angels over the years. I am not sure of the attraction, but if nothing else, it breaks up the sterility of more modern graveyards, which only allow plaques flush with the ground. This image was captured with infrared film, and close examination will reveal a bit of a halo surrounding the highlight area at the top of the head. This is due to the light traveling through the film, reflecting off the camera’s back plane, and traveling back through the film a second time, due to the fact that Kodak’s infrared film did not contain an anti-halation layer. Although not an angel, another graveyard image can be found at
