Long forgotten tragedy (1768)
Lens: Helios 44M 58/2 Camera: K20d Photo Location: Vlieland ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/750s Aperture: F2 
Posted By: Rense, 08-16-2010, 12:04 PM

This weeks P52 challenge is "Architecture - Graveyard". And I guess many of you like shooting on graveyards.... So, why hesitate? Grab your camera, go out and shoot a graveyard! Rules? Just enter 1 photo, made this week, in this thread!

Just as an teaser: a graveyard I shot September last year, with one old and quite peculiar grave "stone", made of a whale bone (1768).

Nice one Rense.

Thanks Ash! Yes, the Helios can do this, but I can't predict the circumstances in which it does....

I like that picture, Rense! Where did you take it?

And BTW, how did you know I'd been planning for weeks to go to a cemetery and take pictures? It'll just have to be this week then!

Ha Lidy! I took this one on Vlieland, in the period I did field work for the ministry of defence on the island. It's the old cemetery of Vlieland-Oost, an old whale fishing village.

Hi Rense,

could you please post, what is written on the grave "bone"? I am curious, but cannot read/understand it completely.

But nice picture, I like it. Was on a graveyard last(!) week.

Hi Rense, Have to echo Ash, that is very nice!

think we might be able to extend duration of contest 40 - 50 years?

Thanks Christoph. The inscription says:
"Hier leijt begraaven
Jantijn Reijnder . is
in den Heere ge
rust in
den jaaren
1758"

Translated (from Old-Dutch into Modern Dutch into English...):
"Here is buried
Jantien Reijnder
Resting in the Lord
in the year
1758"
