High above Portofino, Italy, on a mountainside, is a quiet churchyard with an extensive cemetery with residents through the ages gone to their rest, yet remembered fondly, often with ceramic photos on headstones

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    Beautiful shot, Phil

  • I’m fascinated with Italian cemeteries, long lost loved ones, adored and remembered, often with ceramic pictures of the departed.

    I always liked old cemeteries – lots of stories to make up about the people buried there.

  • me too, steph, and these stones often have a poem, or short few lines reminding folks of the person within.
