ST CUTHBERT'S CHURCHYARD
St Cuthbert's (also known as West Church) contains some of the oldest headstones in Edinburgh and, being located at the west end of Princes Street, makes an ideal diversion from the crowds of shoppers. The land lying immediately around the Church has been a place of Christian burial for a thousand years. There is a record of over 1000 graves and this was the work of John Smith.
I used a 6x6 Hasselblad 501C and 80mm zeiss plannar lens with yellow filter. The film was Tmax 400 rated at 320, developed in Rodinal, and the print was made on Ilford Multigrade IV FB Glossy paper developed in Dektol and Ansco 120.
