Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Tombstones or Cemeteries

Years ago I went to the very atmospheric Nunhead Cemetery in London, and later Highgate….pre-digital era, I never scanned any of the images. So, when I visited Warsaw last year, I was keen to see the Jewish cemetery there, with it’s old tombstones…. I wasn’t disappointed, the setting was marvellous and the stone masonry wonderful:

We were blessed with a bright, sunny day which created some very atmospheric light and shade:

  1. Good atmosphere indeed, Sue.
    My Mum used to live close to Nunhead Cemetery. My grandfather is buried there, and when Mum was alive, she was a ‘Friend of Nunhead Cemetery’. (Don’t tell anyone, but her Alsatian dog is also buried there, under the big tree to the side of the main gate.)
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Wonderfully atmospheric compositions,

  3. Love the light and shade in that first one and 3 is quite striking too. You’d love the Jewish cemetery in Kazimierz, Sue. 🙂 🙂

  4. Jewish cemeteries have a special atmosphere….
    Love the one in your photos, Sue!

  5. This brings back so many memories, not all of them “fun”.

      Well, I have to say I did consider making that comment…I don’t think cemeteries should be considered a ‘fun’ thing, it smacks of disrespect….

  6. Sue, we had a fantastic day … and will always remember my visits … with humbleness and some kind of peaceful joy. Stunning images, Sue. Top one my favourite.

  8. Sue your photos are so perfect for this week. 😀

    Wow, how beautiful this is, Sue. A very good reason to go to Poland, a destination I have wanted to visit for quite some time.

  10. Such atmospheric photos, Sue. I love wandering around old cemeteries.
