Photo: The Wall of Remembrance

[View with PicLens]

People who know me better, know that I’m fascinated by graveyards and I really enjoy to make a Sunday walk within them (during the day). I really like the engraves in the stones and imagine how the life of theses people must have been. Especially Roman Catholic graveyards are great, because some people spend there a decent amount of money for their small private mausoleum (more about this later). Beside this, there exist also the small graves for the people, who don’t have so much money. In southern countries you find them side by side on a wall. Not much space to remember.

This picture was done in Porto in Portugal in a huge impressive graveyard. I liked the nice flowers that paid a little respect to the beloved ones. In total, the picture was pretty gray; therefore I play around with texture effects. The blur is produced by the lens.
