    ok. so here's a bit of Polish tradition of celebrating the 1 November. People visit the graves on cementaries... I know nothing original. But this year the weather was fantastic, and of course I took my cam with me. I'm still a bit ill, and I went there with an extreme cold, but I was able to take a few pictures... I dunno why but I had to straighten all of them... :p maybe it was beacause of cold...:p

    People wandering there. The cementary here is third largest in Europe and is one of the most beautiful places in Poland. actually it is a huuuuuge park... I've never managed to walk from one end to the second... it takes a few hours...

    I don't like this photo but I thought that it might be interesting on one hand...

    #2 & 4 are my favorites, but all are very nice and make a nice series. Alos I have to straighten most of my shots by 1 or 2 degrees[font=&quot] [/font]

    ahh mentos they're lovely. I think the shadows in the first one really make it!

    The yellow tree is a very gorgeous shot and has gorgeous colours!
    I can't pick a favourite,,, but the fountain one with the silhouettes is really moving.

    Gorgeous work.

    Very cool shots. Wonder if that's where the SouthEastern US tradition of "decoration" and "homecoming" comes from? Once a year each church/cemetary holds a day where everyone returns to their childhood church and puts flowers on the graves of relatives.
