    The Church of the Dead, ‘Chiesa dei Morti’ in Urbania, is where these standing bodies over four centuries old reside.

  16. India Varanasi Cremation

  21. Belgium Tree Mansion

    This simple little house had great atmosphere, maybe it was the dead cat in the bedroom, whether it had been a longing pet who’s owner had died and left him with no food or just a stray, it defiantly pulled my heart strings from the word go. The straw strewn…
