Paris Part I – Pere Lachaise

In my last post, I promised you some photos from my latest trip.

The photos I took during my ski trip aren’t that good, so I’m afraid there’s not much to share. Unfortunately, I was using an old point-and-shoot camera (I didn’t want to break my DSLR if I fell down) and for some reason, many of the pictures appear blurred, even in broad daylight! Hopefully, once I get round to work on the video I’ll be able to show you something.

So, these below are photos of Paris. However, since I took like a million pictures (might or might not be exaggerating a bit), and I’ve spent most of my Saturday afternoon and evening editing, and I’m still not finished, I’ve decided to share them in installments.

Therefore, this is Paris Part I – Pere Lachaise.

If you know me, you’ll know that I love cemeteries. As I said in my previous post, Pere Lachaise is one of my favourite places in the world, or at least, the world I know so far.

There are hundreds of graves and they vary from simple tombstones to amazing mausoleums. I love walking along the uneven streets, lost in my thoughts, admiring how people have chosen to remember their loved ones.

When I visited this last time, I remember how these two ladies were just walking and chatting loud and laughing, and I felt they were desecrating the peaceful quietness of the place.

If you ever go to Paris, I recommend you visit Pere Lachaise, in the meantime, here are some photos for you to have a small peek at the beauty it has to offer. Of course, I’m sharing these photographs from the deepest respect for each grave and the families of those buried in them.

I haven’t posted all the photos below, they’re all in my Flickr page, as there are over 50! You can either click here to see them all, or on the link on the right column.

I hope you enjoy them and thanks for taking the time to read. x
