OK, so before we get to the technical review of my photo, here is the history on the subject. I was born in Carluke Ontario, a rural farming area where my Grandfather owned and ran the General Store, the school house was one room and my parents built the house whilst waiting for me to arrive. My paternal grandfather was a very engaging man, and I have very clear memories of him even though I was only 8 years old when he left this world. Today when I arrived at the cemetery in Carluke and walked out to the grave site, I was struck by the big smile on my face thinking about him, all the happy memories that reside in my head. So this is where my 365 will begin where I began, visiting the grave site of the only Grandfather I knew.
Now for the technical bit, please be kind, if I learn anything from this project it will be what I don't know about photography, it is exciting to start something from the very basic foundation and believe me I do mean basic. I took this photo with an 18-105 mm lens and used my tripod for the first time. It was cold with flurries and the wind was howling but here it is and I think this was the perfect place to start. So tell me what you think, help me to improve and I will enjoy the memories that come along for the ride.
