Yesterday (1st of November) being the first saturday of the month was #1day12 pics day. #1Day12pics is a monthly photo challenge where you have to take 12 pictures in one day, with each picture being taken roughly every hour, but this is not enforced and posted to Twitter or Instagram. #1day12pics is organized by organized by @LovingOurPics and @my_cre8ive.
This particular Saturday was a strange day to do this challenge. Yesterday was All Saints Day and in Poland the tradition is to go to the cemetery and place flowers and candles on the graves of loved ones. Although all my family is buried in England, my wife’s are buried here. I thought spending a day in cemeteries wound not be interesting for this type of challenge. I was wrong.

It was quite fascinated following this on instagram! I think it’s a really amazing thing and all the candles at night give so much atmosphere. Personally, I find cemeteries to be quite relaxing and I enjoy visiting them, I’d love to see this in person.
Thanks Kerri, the day is a little bizarre for me, but the cemeteries at night do look great.
