Jacques Demy? Is this the Jacques Demy of "Les Demoiselles de Rochefort" fame? I loved his movies. I am glad he has found a peaceful place to rest. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Les demoiselles de rochefort, les parapluies de Cherbourg, Peau d'Ane... He was a kind of wizard in his way, may he rest among the fairies.

Very touching...and I am sure each object means something.

Makes me wonder what the rocks and pine cones represent ... A very interesting tribute makes a lovely photograph ... As always your talent and inquisitive eye are a gift to us!

It is a Jewish custom to put a stone on the grave when you visit. The pine cones...I am not sure? Maybe the deceased was a nature lover.

Very poignant...

Is that pinecones? Hmmmm, never seen that before at a gravesite. Love they way the ivy is embracing the headstone.

So pretty - I hope someone does this for me! I think I'll probably be cremated though...
Thanks for your kind comment on my blog, Genie.

That IS the grave of the filmmaker. I wonder if it's Agnes Varda who leaves those tokens for her husband.

Today's is a special photograph, Genie. Most poignant.

Beautiful image: I understand the candle, the stones and the flowers, but I do not know about the pincecones...

It's always so reassuring to see fresh flowers and other things on graves, nice to think that people passed, are still in the hearts of their families. The bight yellow pot of flowers is certainly a nice touch on this one Genie.

I was just in Pere Lachaise today...man, was it cold!

Yes, it IS the film maker's grave and the Varda name is already there, although Agnès is fortunately still around!
