Sleep in a Shipwreck Amidst the Sweeping Dunes of Namibia’s Skeleton Coast

This striking resort along Namibia’s wild Skeleton Coast accommodates adventurers in luxurious shipwreck-like cabins.

Inspired by the unspoiled, enigmatic environment, the Shipwreck Lodge comprises 10 eco-friendly units, designed to resemble the wrecked ships scattered along the coastline. Decked out in recycled timber and appointed with wood-burning stoves, the innovative rooms revolve around a spectacular lounge & restaurant overlooking the surrounding sand dunes and the Atlantic Ocean beyond.

Activities at the resort are as dramatic and unique as its architecture, ranging from fantastic wildlife viewing to alternative desert safaris.

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.
