When I was in Paris this past August I spent an afternoon at the Père Lachaise Cemetery. Established in 1804, it the largest cemetery in Paris and was the final resting place for Oscar Wilde, Chopin, Jim Morrison and countless other famous people. According to official records over 1,000,000 people have been interned there.
The weather for my visit was perfect. It was overcast with dramatic clouds, and the occasional break in the clouds would let slivers of light through that cast highlights on the tombs. It is a remarkably peaceful place to walk through and photograph, and is one of my favourite places to visit in Paris.
