A Special Day With Gerda Lelieveld: Cimitero di Staglieno - Outro (emotions)

Cimitero di Staglieno
Some years ago I found searching on the internet a photo of a statue that was on the Staglieno cemetery of Genova. 

I was so impressed by that image. I found information about the cemetery and a desire to go there and photograph the beautiful statues was born. It took another two years, but in June 2012 I could finally go.

On my blog you see the images I made on that trip.
A lot of pinhole images, analog photo's with an old Hasselblad and also polaroid images.
I've developed some of the images with Lith developer.
You can find information about that on my blog

Hi Gerda,

fine images - do you want another tour through Staglieno? In these days there are plenty of flowers, taking pictures after the 1st of November is a good occasion.

All the best from Genoa,
