RIP - 85mm f/1.4

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by StL_Don, Aug 4, 2008.

  1. I went to Jefferson Barracks Cemetery yesterday to check that my dad's marker was in place and correct.
    Since this is one of my favorite places to spend quiet time I went exploring.

    All shot with the D3 and 84/1.4

    Father & son - the same day... makes you wonder what happened that day

    These two bolted out in front of me and bolted away just as quickly

    And the setting where he's placed
    With space getting tight the cemetery has begun having seperate areas for cremated remains. The graves are much smaller and tightly spaced.

    Thanks for looking.
