The Catacombs in St.Stephen's Dome
I must give credit where credit is due.
John took these photos 3 years ago when he was in Vienna.
Being the competitive artist that I am, I couldn't wait to outdo his efforts.
Imagine my dismay when I politely asked the snippy Austrian tour guide if I could take a few pictures and he treated me like I was some kind of pervert for not respecting the dead.
Believe you me, my photos would have been respectful. I had envisioned interesting compositions from different angles in extreme contrast.
As I placed my little camera back in it's case, I began to experience what is known as sour grapes.
Telling myself that it just was a pile of bones anyways, there were many more great photos opportunities in Austria, and what kind of deranged person would want to look at photos of human bones.
Clearly, it's just disrespectful to the dead.
So you can blame John for taking these photos.
I would never dream of such a thing.
