Haunting. Individualism even in death.
I was about to suggest b&w for this but looking at your portfolio I see that you have used this approach to other images of the subject. Surprised that I missed these!

The odd one in, even Tongue. Perfectly placed.

Nicely selected group and well composed.

Reminds me of my visit (pre-digital age!) to the 13th century charnel house (or ‘bone crypt’) situated
underneath the church of the Holy Trinity, Rothwell, Northamptonshire.

Interesting and macabre, saw something similar at the Killing Fields in Cambodia, a strange experience.

Thank you Philip, you are quite right! There are only two in the UK, this one and Rothwell! here is a quote from the site:

The crypt of St Leonard’s Church in Hythe contains one of only two ossuaries in the UK (the other is in Rothwell, Northants). It holds over 2,000 skulls arranged neatly along the walls and 8,000 bones in a huge pile stacked almost to the ceiling.

Can't comment on the photo, but a better title would be "The way to get ahead".

I wonder did he/she stand out in life as his remains are doing in death,,,Tongue
