more from the cemetery

for as far as the eye can see
there are
mausoleums, crypts and graves
at first you might think they are all similar
but each one unique
every door, handle, window,
architectural feature
have their own little details

the paths winds up and down hills
in all directions
every turn something more amazing awaits

one of my favorites
at first glace you think
"this ones really different"
as you walk a little closer
you realize how much detail there is



the bottom half of the door
is a grid of owls and flowers
---------
even the patina was a work of art





the folds of the robe look like they move with the shadows


the mystery to see who it is under the hood
------
even as we peaked inside
we where amazed to find a staircase
going down
--------
all the photos taken this spring at

The detail and workmanship is absolutely amazing. Thank you for the peek at a Paris cemetary. To me they look like little outhouses all lined up in a row. And to know that each holds someones loved one or ones is indeed humbling. Your photography is gorgeous.

Who knew so many wonderful photos could come out of a cemetary. Just goes to show what we can see when we take the time to look with new eyes.

There's something so haunting about cemetary pictures ...I find looking at them is almost addictive. Thanks for sharing them Nancy.
