Nalu Nosara

A family-run boutique retreat in Costa Rica’s coolest surf town, Nalu Nosara consists of 3 wonderful private villas and a hip fitness studio offering everything from yoga and dance to kickboxing classes.

The charming property is situated in the heart of Guiones, within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and the beach, yet its lush grounds - teeming with howler monkeys and iguanas - feel miles away from city living.

Designed by award winning architect Benjamin Garcia Saxe, each stylish, family friendly villa is a private oasis with its own garden and saltwater pool. Interiors are bright and open, with chic, modern decor and smart hi-tech features, and all spaces open onto beautiful outdoor areas, ideal for entertaining in the fresh air.

The slick, fully equipped kitchens come with everything you need to prepare lip-smacking smoothies, while the alfresco showers add a sweet, tropical feel to the spa-like bathrooms.

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.
