Traces of the Past Y2 03

For my return to blogging, I have chosen to create a post for Paula’s Thursday prompt, Traces of the Past.

I could have posted old castles, palaces, ruined abbeys, dilapidated buildings…but instead, I decided on remnants of a past, links to the past, even. A very human past.

First up, we have a 17th Century tin sarcophagus of Pomeranian a Duke:

And secondly, some of the tombs of the Romanov family:


More Traces of the Past here.



  1. excellent and poignant choices.

  2. Interesting choices, Sue. The sarcophagus looks very sturdy. No escaping from there. 😕 Great to see you back again.

  3. Nice ones Sue and its lovely to see you back, hope you’re rested ☺

  4. Welcome back, Sue. Great images!

  5. Nice to see you back. Love the Romanov photo.

  6. Welcome back, Sue. I missed you.

  7. Welcome back, Sue. Not sure if there’s some deeper symbolism in your choice first post back, but I’ll just enjoy it. 😉


  8. Welcome back Sue! Hoping you had a good rest.

  9. Not only do I see you in a week or so, but you’re back in the blogosphere. Treats plus. This is a contrasting pairing: the Romanov tombs are different from your usual palette, but they still bear your mark in the fade out of the railings.

      Treats plus is a lovely way of putting it, Meg! And glad you liked these…apropos my palette, I presume dark… are right there!

  10. The first is exquisite. I had to stop and stare 🙂 🙂 Happy Sunday, Sue!

  11. I would like a tin sarcophagus when I go, Sue. Most impressive!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  12. Welcome Back! Fantastic photos for your return.

  13. Welcome back (with a winning image BTW)

  14. wonderful photo, Sue

  15. We must not forget that regardless of their sumptuousness they only contain ashes.

  16. This is brilliant. I would choose the first one for the slideshow. Do you agree?

  17. Beautiful choices – welcome back, Sue! Stick to your plan…and take it easy.
    I’m trying too. My mother has developed dementia rather fast and right now much is a bit chaotic and depressing. Difficult also that I am an only child.

    • Sue

      Oh, Ann-Christine, so sorry to hear about your mother. Dementia is very taxing…..and emotionally draining. You must look after yourself xx

      • Thank you for your concern. I’m not feeling OK with my bodily sound mother turning into a person I don’t really know. As usual you do not expect this to happen to you…even if you are a rather sound person, “this is not going to happen…”

      • Sue

        I know precisely where you are coming from…

      • …………..I guess so……..

  18. Good to see you back Sue and what a beauty you have started with.
