This is a 4×5 photo of the circus performer’s headstones at Mount Olivet Cemetery in Hugo, Oklahoma. Known as “Circus City”, Hugo is the winter home of several traveling circuses, and is Mount Olivet Cemetery is the final resting place of a lot of circus performers. I photographed this with my 150 mm lens to get a bit of a wide angle, and I included the overhanging limbs as a frame for the photo. As in my last 4x5x365 image, these negatives were underdeveloped and hence a bit flat, but I was able to save them in Adobe Lightroom.
