The Sedlec Ossuary (or ‘Church of Bones’) is a spectacular work of art located in Kutna Hora, in the Czech Republic.  The inside of the church is dramatically adorned by the bones of more than 40,000 human skeletons, which have been arranged in various structures.  Above is the church’s coat of arms, which was originally the crest of the Schwarzenberg family.

An iconic landmark on the St. Petersburg skyline, the Peter and Paul Fortress harks back to the early sixteenth century.  In this image I attempted to recapture the building’s historical nature with some grain and a slight blue colour cast.

This tractor has history in our family, my uncle has kept it running for more years than I can remember.  It may not be new and shiny, but it still runs and still does what is needed in the apple orchard.  Now that my aunt and uncle are turning the orchard over to another generation, I wonder what it’s future is.
