Photographer's Note

Crato is a small city, about 20km from the city of Portalegre, with 1800 inhabitants. I was surprised with the beauty and vantage location of its cemetery.
There is a great view to the landscape all around the city and the cemetery was clean and colorful with all kind of flowers all over the place, although many were made of plastic. People don't have time to change regulary the real flowers, except for some old ladies like these three, dressed in black, problably all widows. They were the only persons in the cemetery, chating with each otherand I think that the one in the back was a recent widow - she looked sad and the others seemed to be conforting her.
I was taking some photos around and decided to wait for them to pass by. Suddenly this one looked at me and asked: "Are we disturbing?", or better "Do we do wrong?", as a free translation, from "Fazemos mal?".
Of course not, I replied.
The light is not so good, with the background overexposed and I might have ruined a bit with the "shadow & hilights", since I really can't get it right with my not good pp skills. I also tried a b&w version in WS.
