*Resting in the Shadow of a Tree*
When you shoot cemeteries, as a photographer you’re conflicted: you want moody shots because of the subject matter and that suggests overcast light or rolling clouds. But generally as a photographer you tend to crave directional light, especially sunlight at dawn or dusk. This shot is the latter, in Bordeaux’s ‘Cimetière de la Chartreuse’. The shadow of the tree over the crypt seemed ominous and I decided to frame it as such.
