Day with the dead

Okay, I have a confession to make - I like cemeteries.  They're peaceful and beautiful and full of stories, and I can spend hours just wandering around in one.  What?  I'm shallow, it doesn't mean I don't have layers (admittedly they're shallow layers, but nonetheless).  So imagine the delight I always take in visiting Pere Lachaise, one of the most interesting cemeteries in the world, final resting place for Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde and a host of other luminaries.  It's an amazing place and if you're ever in Paris, you should make time for a visit - you will find beauty, melancholy, weirdness, fascinating stories and downright creepiness.  Enjoy the photos...
