Photographing Greenwood Cemetery

Having finally received a functioning lens for my newly acquired Minolta SRT 202, it was time to put it through its paces. For both economic and practical reasons, I selected a Rokkor-PF 55mm f/1.7 lens. Several weeks ago, I wrote up a piece about the 202's cousin, MC-II, on which I did some repair work, but has since been gifted to friend and fellow-blogger Tyler Dooley.

Greenwood Cemetery seems to be an almost forgotten place on the outskirts of Birmingham, cuddled up next to the airport. Many of the headstones there have been unsettled by trees which at the time were mere infants or nonexistent. Others have been neglected and abused by the elements, some rather directly.
