Vår Frelsers Gravlund, Oslo, Norway

This cemetery in Oslo is just a twenty minute up-hill walk from Central Station. Due to a rare sunny day in Scandinavia, the colors were brighter and move vivid than usual.Apart from a large, steep hill in the center, the cemetery was on a flat plot of land. The grave markers were all fairly low to the ground, with wide spaces in between. 







A broken cross hides behind an old tomb.




A laminated photograph and bouquet of flowers are all that marks this resting place.





This grave marker was completely covered by vines.



Rather than being sectioned off form one another by small gates or shrubbery, tombs were instead places in elevated pens of gravel.



These are photos I took via the Hipstamatic on my iPhone.



Vines overtake the walls of the cemetery.
