Piazza dei Miracoli: The Camposanto

Arguably the most interesting of the four buildings situated in Pisa’s Piazza dei Miracoli is the Camposanto: a massive walled cemetery that is supposed to contain earth from Calvary (the site outside Jerusalem where Jesus was crucified) shipped to Pisa during the Crusades:

    These very strong black and whites you’re producing Mark are very effective and a great choice for dull days.

    This is an enjoyable series on the Piazza – I like the mono treatment again and the really strong perspective.
