Ah dommage... Better luck next time (and you now have a reason to go back, Genie!)-- Lovely shot all the same. Hope you had a grand time à Paris. Veronique
You'll find Utrillo's grave there.
what a pity, it's a nice quiet cemetery, with its old graves. the only thing i don't like in is it's very low and i feel stuck. next time, maybe. hugs
welcome back home !one more reason to return quickly
Good choice to go black & white.
But still a niece photo in B&W. A kind of the Paris by Eugene Atget . Thanks for showing
Yes that is a strange habit, I also always do. At home I almost never go to a cemeterie. So sorry it was closed, they mostly aren't.
you still managed to convey the experience of the place. excellent.
To bad it was closed. All the more reason to return...Sam
The lonely road is an excellent capture and it evokes the emotion of the place very well in B&W!
Cemeteries are as much a part of the attraction of any city as is the tourist traps. I've found cemeteries in the South to be a treasure trove of history and architecture. The one in your photograph is beckoning you to come in. Beautiful!
Black and white is perfect! Glad you were able to take a brilliant shot. I just love the trees. You captured so much!Black and white is perfect! Thanks for sharing.Have a great week!
Lovely! I've not been to this cemetery in Paris yet, but I hope to visit it next month!
I think it's sad that so many beautiful graves are now regrettably under that bridge.V
As usual, Genie you seem to be able to capture the essence of a place without actually being there. Great shot.Kris
The photo is excellent!
Something left for next time!! :-)
Which reminds me that I still have to find the medieval jewish cemetary here in Barcelona. So many nice and peaceful cemetaries in Paris, but most people only know the Pere Lachaise-one.
Beautiful trees...I too seek out cemeteries ...Trying to figure out how anyone there had garbage to set out? Or maybe those are recyclables ...something to ponder..yikes!
Looks a cold day there!Léia
Bon retour chez toi, Genie. Are you missing Paris already and planning your next trip—when you'll take many more great shots of this cemetery? (Company kept me off the computer all weekend, so let me say now how much I loved your Sat. shot.)
ME TOO! I LOVE cemeteries! Really? your first trip to Monmatre? I am so happy for you, Genie!
Ahh, you know how much I love cemeteries as well! They say everyone is dying to get in.Great choice of an angle!
Well then, Genie, you are just going to have to return to Paris again when it is open!
In French, we say that the fact not to be able to enter gave to the situation "un petit gout de revenez-y" (a small taste of come-back-soon"..)
Go there next time. It is a joy. Can a cemetery be a joy? Yep ...
