Każde z królestw natury: królestwo zwierząt, roślin i minerałow - posiada swoją własną doskonałość.
Człowiek żyjący pośród nich, obserwując je, może czerpać z nich wiele inspiracji w swym dążeniu do własnej, ludzkiej doskonałości.

(Each of the kingdoms of nature: the kingdom of animals, plants and minerals - has its own excellence.
A man who lived among them, watching them, can draw from them a lot of inspiration in his quest for his own, human perfection.)

Dante's Prayer

(c) Piotr Woźniak

(c) Piotr Woźniak

Though we share this humble path, alone
How fragile is the heart
Oh give these clay feet wings to fly
To touch the face of the stars

Breathe life into this feeble heart
Lift this mortal veil of fear
Take these crumbled hopes, etched with tears
We'll rise above these earthly cares 

Loreena McKennitt, Dante's Prayer
(From "The Book Of Secrets", Quinlan Road 1997)

i am fascinated by cemetery architecture. This is by far the best i've seen. Where is it? The song choice is perfect.:)

This cemetery, called Powązki, is one of the oldest in Warsaw. Was founded at 1790.
And yes, it is famous from its unique architecture... Incredible place. The cemetery is renovated step-by-step, but since it's very costly the process is rather slow...
Those shots came from my archive, was taken ca. 10 years ago on real b/w material (Ilford, stil its tonation is my favourite) with Minolta lens... That was the times...
Probably soon we'll have some more photos from this place...
