Oh, how sad!! There are so many, many graves!! Very moving and, in a way, heartbreaking. An amazing capture, JM.

Love the photographs, the colours are so vivid. the greenery looks so alive!

I was there in June/July 2002. Very beautiful place... Prague itself & the Cemetery!

Your capture has magic wrapped up in it. It is like an illustration of a very old fairytale book.
I so wanted to go to this cemetery when we were in Prague. Unfortunately we were at a conference and our time was too limited. Thank you for taking me there after all.

That's quite a sight! Beauty of a photo. Did you read how anti-Semitism is rising in many parts of Europe, esp. Hungary and France...

I see some of that in the U.S., too. It never ends, I guess. I saw a video yesterday of a Muslim mob in Libya, tearing down Jewish tombstones of UK soldiers from WWI. Scary.

Re your comment on Ocala: the burning cross has roots in Florida - the Klan is still with us!

Amazing picture. Very old I imagine. It looks so crowded and it does look like an old fairy tale book illustration as Arija suggested.

As to you comment on the Lichen---Yes it is Lichen. MB

IMPRESSIONANTE!

Um povo carregado de histórias de finais dramáticos.

Curiosamente, aquando à publicação da outra foto, tinha acabado de ler o livro "O cemitério de Praga " de Umberto Eco.
E neste momento, no qual encontro esta outra foto, leio "O último Cabalista de Lisboa" de Richard Zimler, que nos conta o massacre vivido pelos Sefarditas em Lisboa no ano 1506.

Acreditas em coincidências?
