central cemetery

i set out to finally go to vienna's cemetery of the nameless, situated on the danube, near the city limits, but when i got to the bus stop it turned out that the information i had been given online was wrong. instead of waiting for ages, i decided to spend some time at the nearby central cemetery. it was sizzling hot (32C/90F), so the trees in the jewish section were rather welcome. of course, the "some time" turned into over three and a half hours, and i took 205 pictures of the jewish section, statues, and the wonderful church. here is a selection - for more, follow the link.

Stunning photos, Michi. I also love wandering graveyards in different cities.

Love the poppy photo especially...oh and also the red rose at the feet...all of them really : )

It reads as if you've been having great fun with poets and all sounds deadly inspiring : )
