Sainte-Geneviève des Bois - le cimetière

The Russian Orthodox Cemetery
at Sainte-Geneviève des Bois

Although I have only seen this cemetery in the fall, 
in any month one imagines that the setting would still appear as an artist's palette 
but in the shades of the proper season.

Whether carpeted with Ginko leaves, 
a rare blanket of snow, 
or the petals of the spring blooms,
 it would surely be an artist's canvas.

Simply lovely! I love how the out of focus, golden background enhances the cobalt blue of the monument. I know it's a trek but I definitely want to go there some time. Printemps peut-être? Bon week-end!

me too I love the blue !
used to never occur to me to visit a cemetery because of photographic interest
I learned about it in Selma

I love the blue attached to the cross and the backdrop of the golden foilage. Very pretty!

Have a great weekend, Genie. :)
