that looks like a great place to play that game

Some people may find a cemetery a bit spooky to play hide-and-seek but the girls seemed to be having fun. It is a big cemetery with roads and avenues

I am planning to take more pictures and in the future upload them.

Cheers, Draken

That's a picture I like very much - marvellous contrast!

Thank you, Gudrun

I was a bit unsure about this photo (I wanted to delete it in fact) but I decided to adjust it a bit to see what happened and this is the result, Catching the girls made me think about the photographer in Antonioni's film "Blowup" (the script is an adaptation from a story by the Argentinian writer, Julio Cortázar).

I am glad you like it.

Merry Xtmas.

The living in the city of the dead - that's exactly what's so interesting about that shot...

I didn't know about "Blowup" being based on a story by Cortázar- thanks for the link.

The only book by Cortázar I've ever read is Los Premios ( in German ) which someone brought from the then GDR where you had to change money and couldn't buy anything except books and sheet music...

Greetings Gudrun
