Zentralfriedhof (Central Cemetery,Vienna)

Vienna's Central Cemetery was opened in 1874 and is, with its area of 2.4 square kilometers and over 300,000 graves in which 3 million people are buried, the largest burial site in Europe.It´s a resting place for people from all religions.
After seeing some pics of this `more a parklike´cemetery in pbase and other Vienna info sites i was interested in taking some pics,here i am trying to picture the colourful side(mostly)of this wonderful resting place,although i actually planned to make the pics with BW film and i used my Digi cam for a trial shooting.
the inspiration for this gallery is this wonderful work by Sharon Rogers http://www.pbase.com/woodmist/st_michaels_churchyard
