5 Frames with the Sigma DP2 Quattro in North Merchiston Cemetery – By Tim Bradshaw
For more than twenty years from 1989 I lived in Edinburgh, and I still have friends there. Like many cities there are a significant number of Victorian cemeteries, gradually falling into decay in a way that allows rather easy romantic memento mori photographs.
At some point in the late 1990s to 2000s, the council became alarmed by the prospect that unmaintained gravestones could fall on people, and they would be liable. This is something that happens about as seldom as you might expect: like shark attacks or meteorites falling on people’s heads, it happens so rarely that every time it does happen it is in the news. But still the council worried.
