Esperas Hotel

Spilling down the cliff face of Santorini’s caldera, Esperas Hotel in Oia combines traditional Cycladic style and dramatic sunset views with contemporary comforts.

Beautifully restored cave houses serve as luxurious accommodation for guests, while a scenic restaurant offers exquisite Greek/Mediterranean cuisine with the bright blue sea as a background.

The hotel’s studios, suites, and house vary in style, size, and character, but all of them feature pristine whitewashed walls, traditional wooden furnishings, and high-quality natural materials. Luxurious marble bathrooms and private terraces overlooking the caldera come as standard in all units, and the superior suites have blissful outdoor Jacuzzis with breathtaking vistas.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
