Here’s the second of three galleries featuring photos in a gray and green theme that I first posted (and described how they came about) in Winter Gray and Winter Green (1 of 3).
Thanks for taking a look!

Brilliant. A single subject against the background really does it. It enhances both.
Thanks, Michael. This Photographer had a lot of fun finding these tiny subjects then figuring out how to get backgrounds that worked well. Thanks for the comment!
You’re very welcome. It worked really well.
Thank you, Irene! That’s why I enjoyed doing these: the subjects aren’t “traditionally” beautiful, but can still be very compelling.
Inspiring, thank you
Thank you! And thanks for commenting, glad you liked the photos. 🙂
I’m really enjoying this series! The streaked copper (or bronze?) background behind the juniper in shots 2 & 3 looks like an Impressionist painting, very cool effect.
Apparently mausoleum doors can make great backgrounds, who knew!?!
According to a book I have about the cemetery, the doors are bronze. They aren’t normally opened (although the cemetery does open them for certain events); but when they are, you can see that they’re three to five inches thick, and some are about eight feet high. Can’t imagine how much they must weigh or what effort was needed to install them. Few show any damage, other than the weathering that produces those shades of bue/green with red or orange highlights. Built to last forever, I guess!
Glad you are enjoying the photos; thanks for the comment!
