Old Jewish Cemetery, Prague
More from Prague. Below are a few of the many photos I took at the Old Jewish Cemetery (Starý židovský hřbitov). The cemetery contains an unknown number of graves, layers of graves, gravestones one upon the other. Estimates commonly seen on the internet say 12,000 or so headstones and 100,000 buried there from the late 1400's until the late 1700's. As cemeteries are among my favorite photographic subjects, Elesa and Carl had to wait a bit while I (and Shelby) took "one last" photo. The light was constantly changing as the sun played peek-a-boo behind the clouds.
