Social work is important in end-of-life care

Picturing memorials, cemetaries and sensuality

20140915 cemetaries sensualityI thought you might be interested to know that loads of people (not just me, as I occasionally do in this blog) take pictures of cemetaries and memorials: I think how people memorialise those they have lost is an important aspect of culture. So I was impressed by a list published by some somebody using Mamluke as a name of cemetary groups on Flickr, the photosharing website.

Intriguingly, one of the sites listed is about sensuality in memorials, and mainly consists of graves that include statues of naked or filmily-dressed women among their memorials; mainly catering to the viewing interests of men, I fancy; or perhaps sensuality in cemetaries has never focused on male sensuality.
