Very nice series, especially the first three and last one. I'm impressed with your dedication Alex. I get so lazy in winter

Dedication? More like lack of ideas. I think I've done enough of those "flowers of the dead". Time to move on...

You're dedicated too, you shoot auroras and test lenses!

I try to walk every day regardless of the weather. Walking is the only kind of physical activity I don't hate Usually I take one of my cameras with me.

Actually I am, but it has nothing to do with the subject matter. Photography is kind of a psychotherapy to me.

I like Canadian cemeteries, so green, nice and peaceful. The cemetery in my home town is an endless aluminum hell of uniform little pyramids and fences on a sun-scorched slope of a mountain...

Thanks, Dan! For me this special quality is worth the expense of shooting film I'll probably print some of these...

Thanks! It's the best shot of the roll. Kodak Gold's "retro" colour palette with emphasized browns worked well with the subject.

Looks lovely! Great colours too! ...

...I also love seeing the old lens (vivitar 70-210)  in action!

Thank you for sharing these,

Lovely images, beautiful tones.  The third - of the greenish flowers, photographed with the Helios - is my favorite.  But the angel headstone is really nice as well.

Thank you for sharing these.

Thanks, Ari! The Vivitar is surprisingly good for an old zoom. The deer was shot at 210mm and turned out pretty good.

Thanks, Miguel! The angel is a little figurine shot at very close distance, hence the smooth bokeh
