We went to one of our local graveyards today, the oldest in Blackpool, so I could take some photographs and the kids could have a wander around. And I took 70 shots, or thereabouts, and absolutely all of them were terrible. Lately I think I've been trying to produce more 'straight' photography, more naturalistic perhaps, but I have to confess that I've been finding it something of a less than satisfying struggle at times.

So, having spent an hour or two going through today's graveyard shots, and getting more and more miserable about how bloody awful they were, I decided that it was time for a radical change – so here's today's shot :-)

Update: Fellow Eskimo's comment reminded me that I first read about Rain-X (used to 'encourage' the water droplets to be round) at round-here.net.
