Unwind in True Cycladic Fashion at Oia’s Andronis Arcadia Hotel

Santorini is an island where hotels compete for views of mesmerizing seascapes and sunsets, and Andronis Arcadia delivers them in spades. But that’s not all that draws in vacationers - the stylish all-suite hotel on the edge of Oia is replete with amenities and looks like it came out of the pages of a decor magazine.

A classy, contemporary take on the traditional Cycladic style, the architecture is an ensemble of white cubic volumes interspersed with dreamy turquoise pools and magnificent outdoor terraces. The interiors are earthy, polished, and minimal, with light oak furnishings and inspired craft details placed against an abundance of smooth white and beige surfaces.

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.
