A short walk through Père Lachaise

A nice October morning. Not much time, but still enough for a quick photo-walk through Père Lachaise cemetery in central Paris. It somehow seemed neater, and cleaner than I remembered. In stead of smouldering heaps of leaves, creating that romantic atmosphere, the cemetery was now filled with work people wearing fluorescent vests, brandishing leaf blowers like machine-guns, creating a tremendous din. Well. The photo’s are silent.

Paris. Tombs in the Père Lachaise cemetery.
