I collect turtles! In many countries, they are a symbol for carrying the world on their shoulders (= responsability). I wondering what (or who..) is this one carrying ?..
What a wonderful detail of this amazing place—like it in b&w too. Couldn't you just spend days here with a camera?
Such an interesting place filled surprises. You have such a good eye and capture it so well.
Oh gosh, turtles!!!!!Very creative! You know, I'm always enchanted by turtles because they remind my childhood.I had a nice turtle, so lovely memories!hugsLéia
That is one strong turtle! lol I always heard that their shells were strong. Guess it's a case in point.Have a wonderful week!
You have a good eye my friend. V

What a splendid detail to find, Genie. Thanks for sharing it. The native peoples of North America call our continent "Turtle Island."
This picture just shouts "Père Lachaise".BTW, did you make it to the champagne tasting?
Oh that is lovely. What a cute turtle.
Ahhh, but he does it so well!!!
Heavy yes!! but look at that determined expression on his face. I just love this detail. xx Dianne
To all -- Thanks for all your comments about the post... I am so enjoying Paris and it will be difficult to leave ... I can't wait to show you all that I have discovered, seen, and re-seen...For all those things that I do not have time for ... that is why I must soon return!Bises,Genie
....and what an exquisite detail!
Genie, I too am a turtle lover and really like this. Since I'll be going to Paris in February, can you tell me more or less (or exactly!) in what part of Pere Lachaise this monument is? Perhaps it's near someone famous, so I could find it....
Well at least he's not carrying the weight of the world. Tough little guy.
What a great shot in a great place. This looks very familiar to me.
He is adorable! Did you have to hang out a window to get the shot? That's my Sister!! Can't wait to see more! Glad you are home!
This is absolutely amazing!
