Getting this photo took some perseverance. With all the selfie-shooters and the “I was there” poseurs (the most popular shot was someone’s goofy head sticking out an eye socket), I had to patiently wait my turn.
A cool, gray autumn day set the perfect mood for a stroll in Munich’s Alter Südlicher Friedhof (The Old South Cemetery). It was established as a plague cemetery outside the city gates in 1563, and because it was Munich’s only cemetery until 1868, it’s crowded with ornate gravestones and monuments of area notables.
Our blogging buddy Carol at Which Way Now 101 invited us to participate in a B&W photo challenge. We don’t use many black and white shots in our blog posts, so it sounded like an interesting challenge.
