I like cemeteries and I like Franz Kafka, so when we were in Prague in 1994, I definitely had to visit the New Jewish Cemetery in Žižkov where Kafka was buried. It's a beautiful place and it has all what I like about cemeteries - peace, quietness, hints of the past, and sometimes signs of neglect and decay.

I had just started to photograph "in earnest" and I don't think any of my photos from Prague are really good. But this one at least captures the mood of the place on this particular afternoon quiet well.

Taken in September with the Nikon on Ilford HP5 Plus.
