Jeg syns det er flotte bilder! Altfor få av oss har sett døde mennesker, ikke noe skremmende i det annet enn den redselen vi alle bærer på i forhold til det selv å dø en gang. Det er noe gotisk over dette som er fasincerende.

det var fint.
og nå syns jeg nesten jeg var litt ekkel selv som syns det var fint, men det var jo fint. på en spesiell måte.

Siri said...

Nei, det var bare ekkelt.

Hadde det vært noe annet enn babyer, hadde det kanskje ikke vært så ekkelt..

Døde babyer er creepy, men bildene var fine... På en creepy måte... :/

hvorfor er døde babyer eklere enn andre døde mennesker? av ren nysgjerrighet altså

i guess the fact that death is a big part of life gets a bit too sad and unfair when it's people who only got just a tiny taste of life.

Hello!
Interesting photos! :)
Here in Mexico (Guanajuato precisely,) there is a "death museum", featuring many photos like these...

If you ever have the opportunity to visit Mexico, visit the mummies of Guanajuato ... are incredible! ;)

Greetings from Mexico! :D
