Weaste Cemetery, Salford
Peering through a shrapnel hole in a headstone…
More photos from Weaste Cemetery, Salford where the headstones still show the damage done during the Christmas Blitz of 1940.
These headstones are about here on this Google map
Period photo showing a bomb crater.
That is really interesting, never seen nothing like this before.
Good grief, some fair old chunks taken out the stones
great series, awesome concept that top shot with the framing! the series gives a good indication of just how dangerous it would have been to be there .. lucky these fullas are already dead i guess.
That is incredible and like Simon , I have never seen anything like it before your shots !
That is a great lead shot , just up my street TBH have a thing about taking pics through holes and such .
A very interesting series. Perfectly captured.
The noise from the bomb must have been loud enough to wake the dead! Wonderful series of photo Ian, you have a fantastic ‘eye’ for the unusual pov!
Amazing what you find … not the general you but you Ian! lol.
From the top shot I thought – that is a clean shrapnel hole but then realised the defocus effect. As I said, amazing
Needless to say, the effect on living flesh and bone would have been horrific.
nice framing and POV, Ian
(PC broken so not uploading for a while, but will try to keep up.)
wow ian brilliant photos and history
Great framing Ian ! Very interesting series. never seen anything like this before !!!!
fascinating shot ian – great POV : )
Truly amazing scene. absolutely fascinating.
Fascinating shots Ian. Hope you are well
Well, this is a bit eerie shot. If I didn’t know the story and see your previous post from the cemetery, I’d think it had been taken from the inside of the grave 😉
Very Clever Observation !!!
Clever and somehow macabre too Ian.
Sorry – I was going to comment a while back but ‘life’ got in the way
