jour sept

one of my "must do's " for paris
cimetiere du pere-lachaise
i was in "grunge" heaven
out of the 832 photos
half are of the decay
i already see an encaustic series
coming out of these photos


inside one of the crypts

one of the many doors
-------
after 6 hours we maybe saw one quarter
next time i will pack a lunch and take my time
to really appreciate this wonderful place

I love pere lachaise cemetery! When I was there, The Doors movie had just come out and everyone was making a pilgrimmage to Jim Morrison's gravesite. The rest of the cemetery was so peaceful and beautiful though. I'll be back....

I too spent one of my favourite days in the cemetery. It's solitude and quiet compared to the rest of Paris is idyllic on a sunny day.

And now that volcanic ashes are ruling your life you can go back, you lucky girl!! Did you know there is a huge DOG cemetary in Paris?

I love these photos. I think I want to go to Paris just to go to Pere Lachaise Cemetery - well, the flea markets, too.

I didn't think I'd ever find a cemetary to be beautiful, but this is.
