Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in an old cemetery that was used for soldiers at Fort Douglas in Utah.
Time
I love this because there was so much fog, and it looked so creepy, but is was 9 o'clock in the morning. It's like my soul was being called to explore what nature could do, and how I could capture it.
Lighting
It was really foggy out during this so the lighting was perfect for creep photos especially in this old cemetery. I used the fog to my advantage to get detail on the headstone, and with the fog in the background, it really made it stand out.
Equipment
Just my Canon.
Inspiration
I have PTSD, and was not having a good day, the fog called to me and I was able to really capture how I was feeling. This tombstone was the most worn down of all of them, and it struck me how the name was illegible, and how no one really cares who this person is any more. He probably died in the late 1800's when the Fort was set up to to protect Salt Lake. It really spoke to me how fleeting life is and how we only have limited time to make an impact.
Editing
Yes, there was some in lightroom, with upping the contrast and clarity, as well as darkening to show the detail of the cracks.
In my camera bag
I always have my Canon, as well as my Tamron AF 28-75mm and Canon EF 50mm f/1.8, I also carry my flash with me but don't utilize it often
Feedback
I always try and see the things that usually go unnoticed, so keep your eye out, and if you see interesting weather outside, don't sit and think about it, go out there and see what you can get. Some of my favorite photos came from this day, and it was because I didn't hesitate, and stopped lots of places to see what I could get.
