Tombant en ruines



In need of repair
but the ghosts are free
to come and go


What a beautiful tomb this 
once was



Père Lachaise
75020, Paris

Bonjour chère amie,

Comme il est dommage de laisser dépérir un tel lieu... Cette porte est magnifique.
Ta capture photographique apporte un grand mystère...

Gros bisous ☼

Love this old door.

What a great find Genie. Don't think I would want to be there at night though. Wouldn't want to get in the way of the ghosts.

Impressive photo... The sandglass is relentless...

Thanks so much, Genie.

It does need repairs... but it deserves it.

On this day we were chased out by the guards who were closing for the evening. Brrrrrrr

Danar, thank you for your loyal following and comments.

I'm a little surprised the door hasn't been chained shut. Such an invitation to vandalism. And a little sad to see.

I love this photo. Imagine the possibilities of where this door leads and who used it in the past.
