Cimitero Prazeres, Lisboa: Revisit Part II

The second Post about my visit is all about sculptures. So let's cut the crap and let the pictures speak:

A *very* fine example of Art Nuveau

Prazeres Cemetery, Lisboa: Revisit

Bloody Hell!

It's half a year since i've done a post here so it is about high time to change that:

I've visited the Prazeres Cemetery in Lisboa again this October and i'd like to share some of the Pictures i've made there.

This post is all about Hourglasses since they pop up all over the place there. It begins with the entrance and they can be found nearly everywhere on this amazing cemetery.

This time i was lucky with the light since it was sunny all day. Last time it was overcast and the shadows were -in my opinion- a bit too soft.

Enough of the words:

A classic one. On top of a Crypt.

Note the delicacy of the bones!

Cimitero monumentale di Staglieno -again-

Dear readers -or rather viewers: I'm a bit lazy with words...

I'm not growing tired about the Staglieno Cemetery, Genoa. And i've not showed you all the photos i've made there. Not by a mile.

So i'd like to show you some more, this time focused on female scuptures:

Cimitero Monumentale Torino -again-

Just a small amount of text this time since i'm focusing on the images.  I think this suits you as well..

The images this time are a bit on the black/white side but that's just an illusion. The sky on the day i took these ones was a grey sheet from horizon to horizon. And that makes everything a bit bleak and shallow. It was perfect weather for portraits since the shadows were very soft, but it was rubbish for my purposes. I hope you enjoy these ones anyway...

Proof: Not Black/White images all the way!
