As a dream when one awaketh...Psalms 73: 20

It might seem like a dream
Where colors are inverted
As head stones stand in light
For the dead converted
In a church yard at night.
Poetry by me AJP

I am not sure what made me decide to use the negative filter on this church yard cemetery picture that I shot a few years ago but it did make an unusual effect. From the negative filter I then converted the color into black and white as I felt the colored version was too much on the unreal side.

I shot this after a lutefisk supper in October of 2008 as we were leaving the church.. It reminds me of being white washed with snow .....In the bottom of the picture you can see the shadows are turned white of my husband and I where I am shooting the picture.

Please view in Light box for best results! Thank you!

Thank you so much Barbara Kurth for the spotlight on 3-25-2014! Very appreciated!!!
