Another Post about Brugge, Belgium

I've just recently browsed though my pictures and i spotted some interesting details about Brugge: The first visit was in January 2009. It was freezing cold but sunny so it was a good opportunity to make pictures that capture the gloom of the winter (which fits for the location).

The second visit was in April 2011 and it was unusually hot. Spring was all around, and you could sense that summer was not far away...

Here is a picture i've take in January 2009:

Heavy decay on statue 

This is the same statue in Spring 2011:

Where is all the moss gone?

Detail of the same Statue:



I bet that this happens every single year. I wasn't aware that the change of seasons does alter some sculptures in such a radical way.

To end this post i'd like to show you -again- the famous skull at the cemetery brugge. I took some pictures of it at the first visit, but i was never really satisfied with the results. I was new to the subject of photography and i made everything wrong...

This time though i was satisfied with the results and i'm ready to show you it without being embaressed....

And since wer're on the subject of skulls: Here are some details at one richly carved grave on the same cemetery:

They even thought of the scythe...

Camposanto Staglieno angain. This time focused on beauty. Again.

I've got something to celebrate with you: This week my 5.000th visitor arrived. I'm not sure who he or she is, but i'm taking the opportunity to thank you all. You make it worth for me to carry on this blog. So come and visit regularly.

The pictures of this entry are handselected gems from the Camposanto Staglieno, Genoa, Italy. It will always be my favourite cemetery because there is so much unbelievably beautiful to discover. I'm always struggling when i have to describe it to somebody who wasn't there so i won't bother today to do it to you again. Let the pictures speak for themselves...
