One of the great things about Poland from a photography perspective are its cementaries. Yeah that sounds a bit morbid, but it really isn’t. When I bought my Lumix DC-FZ82 a Polish friend ordered me to go to one of the most famous cementaries in Poland: Rakowicki accross the historical university (Akademia Ekonomiczny) located in the heart of Krakow.
At the time I didn’t understand why but when I arrived on chilly, but crisp March afternoon I immediately understood. Polish people care for their late loved ones. Cementaties are maintained very well, family graves are regularly cleaned and provided with a fresh supply of flowers. Rakowicki is a massive cementary, with loads a trees and unlike many parts of Krakow isn’t surrounded by massive blocks of flats, which allows for natural light to roam free.
At the time I just bought my camera so the shots are bit rough but still provides you a good indication. Sadly I don’t have any pictures from All-Saints as all cementaries accross Poland are light with candles.
