Crossing the stone paths of Cimetière du Père Lachaise

The winter of their years. Great light.

A beautiful post for Theme Day Genie. Your perspective and subject magnifies how small we can be in the passage of life leading to our ultimate crossing. A very poigniant interpretation of the Theme.

La vue, en contre plongée, qu'ont les âmes des défunts quand ils rejoignent le ciel ?

Rob Siemann said...

This is a very good shot.

You have really captured the essence of Pere Lachaise. It is a wonderful place to contemplate life. There is a certain peace there, a quiet reverence, that is hard to describe.

Fantastic! J'adore, et ça m'incite à dire et redire : carpe diem!

Kate said...

The passing? Don't think I want to think about that just yet. Dramatic photo.

Creative interpretation of "crossing" ... A poignant choice for this day. BZZZ

This photo is eye catching.

Great shot. I love the leaves just beginning to come out on the trees and the sun filtering through. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme with a photo by my 17-year-old who is in France this week.

Beautiful, and the comment, too. I see a photographer kneeling!

Walter Beckham said...

Splendid photo, Genie!

Alexa said...

What Bibi said—or maybe he's praying for a shot as good as yours!

Peter Olson said...

One of the best shots I ever saw from Père Lachaise! The atmosphere is definitely there!

Starman said...

How appropriate for le poisson d'Avril.

Everything about this shot is right. The lines, lighting, composition, and depth of field are all spot on. Save for the occasional patches of green and slight reddish leaves, this is a monochrome. I imagine a contrasty B&W would be totally smashing -- the texture of the cobblestone street would pop. Kudos again Genie [and hugs].
