Here is another photograph from the ancient cemetery in St Hilaire de Riez. These are graves for children. It was pouring with rain but I wanted to take pictures. The umbrella is useful for obvious reasons but I have found that it makes an interesting prop and counterpoint as well. I am influenced here by one of my favourite photographers, Saul Leiter, who sometimes uses canopies and covers in his compositions. The images you can see here at Lens Culture are amazing, a really interesting artist, and it is well worth buying any of his books.
