San Antonio Suites

Perched on a natural volcanic plateau in Santorini, halfway between Oia and Imerovigli, 5-star San Antonio offers slick Cycladic suites, a gorgeous cave-like spa, and breathtaking views of the caldera.

All luxuriously appointed accommodations come with stylish island inspired decor and balconies overlooking the dazzling sea, and the most exclusive of them feature private gardens with alfresco Jacuzzis and sunbathing terraces.

Clinging to the caldera cliffs, the hotel’s fabulous infinity pool makes for a surreal setting to sip sunset cocktails while taking in the epic scenery. When you’re feeling hungry, head to the aptly named Cliffside Dinner Restaurant, where fresh and delicious Mediterranean meals are accompanied by fine local wines and dramatic Aegean vistas, or opt for an intimate private dining experience under the stars.

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.
