the most beautiful cemetery

sorry for being absent lately… i thought i would have a lot of time for blogging now that i finished my study. but somehow life is busy, but i’m not complaining about it ;)
in addition i’m working on my portfolio for a photography college, the entrance exam is on may 24th, i’m  a bit nervous already…

so today i got up early to take some photos at a cemetery in vienna, called “st. marxer friedhof”. it is the only remaining cemetery from the biedermeier period and was founded in 1784. wolfgang amadeus mozart is one of the most famous people who found their peace at this beatuiful place.
up to now i didn’t like cemeteries very much but today i stayed for almost two hours, this place was kind of magical for me… and for some reason i had to cry when i saw the pictures on my computer. i didn’t expect to get so emotional when seeing them, it was overwhelming. i definitely have to go back there one day…

  1. My mommy really loves old cemeteries, and your photographs are absolutely beautiful. Love the shadows, and it looks as if spring has come to Vienna. Best of luck on your portfolio.

    • thanks miss harper lee ;)
      this cemetery was really special even though i don’t really know why… thanks for your very kind comment! i will let you all know how the exam went :)
      have a great evening!

  2. I also used to think that cemeteries are a little scarry and stuff like that…but if you leave in a hidden place of your brain all the ghost stories, it’s a really a nice, quiet place :) and yes, it can be overwhelming thinking how many souls are there, everyone soul with a different story from a different period of time.

    Nice photos ;)

  3. wonderful images…! for some reason I really like cemeteries, something about the vibes there. They are they own little worlds.. weird worlds, especially in sunlight…

    • thanks a lot. i usually do not like them very much, except this one… weird indeed, i’m asking myself why i liked it so much ;)

    • thanks. it was a magical place but it really is hard for me to look at those pictures now… strange somehow!
      have a great weekend!

let me know what you think about it...
