Death Takes a Holiday

cross-at-pere-lachaise-in-parisI find myself lost in a forest of tombs. A flock of earthbound ravens part as I walk by them on the cobbled path. Some fly to the bare tree limbs above, while others continue their foraging, undisturbed by my presence.

The dead surround me, but I sense no discontent, no malice. Even beneath a canopy of gray clouds, gloom has no home here. Instead, there is serenity. The only souls haunting this place belong to the living.

NOTE: Visit the HiP Paris Blog to see more of my photos of Père Lachaise, along with my story on the cemeteries of Paris.

    Lovely photos. I noticed that you exhibit in a San Francisco gallery. Do you get your glass prints done here in the Bay Area? If yes, can you tell me who does the printing for you? (I’d like to put a few prints of my art onto glass.) Thanks so much for any information you can provide.

      Oh sorry, you don’t have a SF gallery. You have SF photos. Anyway, I saw some of your photos on glass and would like to do that with my work.
