A stone decoration at the entrance of a section of tombs. Sure it is a piece of masterpiece of work in stone. It is a pity that the elements of nature is destroying them.

When you go back to this cemetery, it would be interesting to concentrate on the detail of some of these ornate pieces. I would love to get real close-ups of some of these pieces.

Joline, sure I will go back to this place because there are my treasures over there. I will take more closeups, but it's better to take permission from the health department to take photos in this place.

Thanks to all for your comments.

I think there are lots of photographic opportunities in cemeteries. However, where I come from, the cemeteries are getting to be very crowded places; I mean, people are dying to get into one. As a result, photographers in cemeteries, especially those photographers who are still breathing, have to be very careful with backgrounds. For example, in this photograph, the stone decoration does not stand out from the background. Rather, the bottom half of the stone decoration does not stand out from the background. Therein lies the clue as to how this photograph may have been improved: I think if you were to have taken it from a lower viewpoint so that the background was the tree or the sky the decoration would have stood out.

A sharper subject with a more blurred background would enhance this shot.

You mention its a pity that the elements of nature are destroying these fine stone works, however its that fact that I find most fascinating. The monuments made to the dead decompose, in nature, as all things do and are not immune. A very subtle reminder of how fleeting life is. Art mimics life.

Im surprised you have to ask permission to take photos in cemeteries Malta!

as one of the comments said "why ask the health department to take photos there? can you divulge in which cemetery is the stone urn? still a great subject and the weathering of the stone makes it more interesting!
