One of the reasons that we spent so much time in La Recoleta was the fact there were so many small details everywhere that made the place.
Whether it be a cracked and decaying coffin, rusty skulls, or headless angels, I just wanted to see it all. I couldn’t help but squeeze myself through bars and cobwebbed windows to get glances of decaying coffins. Morbid? A bit. BUT AWESOME! I’m definitely a photographer.
One of the things that drew me to this image was noticing the decay and life represented in a small area. The water damage and fixed structure cracks can tell an interesting history for sure but the one thing that got me was – that in a city of death, ferns and trees somehow made themselves a thriving home on one of the tombs. 😛
