√Čvora


√Čvora Cathedral

In the Cloisters of the Cathedral of √Čvora are the tombs of three Bishops, they are to the right of my picture dated - 27th May -

This was one of those times when I wish I had written the names on a piece of paper, but I am fairly sure this is the resting place of Emanuele Mendes da Conceição Santos † (9 Feb 1921 Installed - 30 Mar 1955 Died)

Ohhhh !! Ellie ! Que trabajo de investigación más bueno has hecho. En cuanto a la fotografía me gustan las líneas que dibujan el féretro y nos llevan hacia el fondo difuminado!

Ohhhh! Ellie! That better work of investigation you have done. As far as the photography I like the lines that draw féretro and they take to us towards the stumped bottom! smile
Another master piece.
The details are so very sharp and clear. The perspective makes a good composition too.

Lots of great historical information here, Ellie. You do that so well!

I particularly like your perspective on this tomb, with the sharp focus on the bishop's "hat" (surely it has a name!) and stole.

You have just got to admire the stone masons who do this work, good shot as well.
My goodness me the ornamentation on the Bishops mitre is just so unbelievable. It's as fine as white work embroidery.
Beautiful details on this one....I think it is a good thing that we don't all need this kind of a tomb smile
Nice capture of details. I like the angle of the shot.
Great shot of the mitre - I like the crispness in what must have been low light conditions. Nice to give all the background too! Mike

Great shot Ellie. These marble stones make for nice nice contrasting.
I love that angle Ellie and the detail is marvelous.
