Lake Como, Lenno Cemetery

This is a very small cemetery in Lenno, Italy. We drove by it regularly going to a restaurant we liked. I wanted to photograph the cemetery but was worried it might seem disrespectful. As people came to tend the graves they didn't seem troubled by my presence so I continued to shoot. One man who spoke no English (and being American I speak ONLY English) wanted me to photograph the graves of his mother, his father and his brother. I photographed the graves of his family and he warmly shook my hand and communicated that I should close the gate when I left. It was a touching moment.
