Now this blog is a wee bit late, due to my enforced rest period over Christmas but this session was so much fun!
I squeezed this one in just before Christmas and we went with a much darker and deeper theme than I've done in a while. Fun, fun FUN!
Oh and did I mention fun?
Working with Miss Flic Caracou is always guaranteed to be a laugh as she's loads of fun to hang out with and this was no exception. She also comes up with super cool locations and for this shoot, we hit up a crazy little cemetary in the middle of town, that is crazy as it has a whole lot of headstones, but no people under them! Or very few anyways.
The historic Bolton Cemetary was moved, yes moved in the 70's when they built the motorway right smack through the centre.
Almost all of the people interred there, were exhumed, and reburied in one mass gravesite, which is outlined in the grass, with a beautiful surrounding of trees, a natural ampitheatre laid in concrete and a lonely plaque detailing only the number of bodies. Which is well over 3000.....
Many of the remaining headstones, particularly close to the mass site, are merely stones and are in a terrible state of repair. Cracked, broken, falling down the hillside as it succumbs to erosion and land movement and they are a sight to behold. It's a beautiful and serene spot, which we took full advantage of!
Here are a few sneaky peeks.....
