Je suis éblouie! This gravesite is so dramatic, but your close-up is even more so.

Stunning. So pure, so honest, so gentle.

Bonjour Genie,
my first home when i moved to Paris was near le Père Lachaise. A very nice promenade place. Bon lundi à vous ! :-)

I spent time at Pere Lachaise in my 2002 visit to Paris. Must journey there again during my next visit in September 2011.
