Perhaps this is a morbid subject, but I was browsing through some of my photographs and I came across a series of pictures that I took of Pere Lachaise cemetery, on the outskirts of Paris, and I thought I’d share them.
Opened in 1804 it is now one of the most visited destinations in Paris. It’s a truly unique place, with a calm and peaceful atmosphere. The Bloke and I visited on a glorious sunny day, and I was astounded by how beautiful it was.
There are lots of famous graves that are situated around the cemetery. Here are just a few of them…
Jim Morrison (my friend visited the week before and said that a large bottle of Jack Daniels had been left there)
If you ever get the opportunity to go, I would highly recommend it. It’s certainly an unusual and beautiful experience…
