Taken in Sapanta, Maramures, Romania.
This village has a reputation for its graveyard. It's no common burial place, for its name is (I'm not sure about the accuracy of the translation) "The Merry Cemetery" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merry_Cemetery).
I took his picture because he looked very lonely in the dusty road, just watching tourists go by. Anyway, when I first saw him he was heading towards his home, at a crossroad on the main road where one could see a sign showing the way for "Merry Cemetery". It occured to me that he was waiting to take that road, instead of the one to his home.

Love to see more of your images
