Photo of the Week

I’ve decided to start doing a ‘Photo of the Week’ feature, having seen it done so well on other blogs. And now I have a new camera it’s the perfect excuse! So every Sunday I’ll be posting my photo of the week here; mixing it up with shots from the week itself to pictures from past travels. Enjoy!

This week’s photo is the imposing Petrinovič family mausoleum in Supetar on the island of Brac (one of Croatia’s beautiful islands off the Dalmatian coast). The whole graveyard was immaculately maintained and family plots are obviously highly treasured. Francisco Petrinovič was a local shipowner who made his fortune in the trade. The design by artist Toma Rosandic was obviously intended to impress upon everyone else just how moneyed the Petrinovič family was.
