    Hi all, I wanted to share some photos I took today and tonight of the
    goings on at a local cemetary here in Lublin. Before I came to Poland I
    had never seen anything like this, and I figured it might be
    interesting for some of you, too. The night time shots are converted to
    B+W partly because I'm limited with my SD9 in that area, but I also
    think they look better in grayscale, since it's really the light that
    counts here, not the colors. The pics weren't meant to be impressive,
    but to show something that maybe not everyone has seen. Enjoy!

    Thank you for sharing. I was impressed by all the flowers and I really was
    impressed by the night time shots with all the candles. You did well to
    convey what you saw.

    Yes, not bad for a "mere Sigma". ;)

    All those flowers - wow! I've never seen anything like that.

    It is quite impressive to see. This year we had unusually warm weather,
    so it was a bit easier to make the rounds with my significant other. My
    only regret is that I would have liked to do a more in depth study of
    the actual people at the cemetaries, but because of the character of
    the holiday it's not possible at just any old cemetary. All daytime
    shots were made from outside of the cemetary walls. Nighttime shooting
    was less intrusive for others, so I was able to get some shots inside.
    Next year I plan on going to one of the cemetaries where TV crews and
    reporters are more common, and hopefully I'll be able to do more
    portraits.
