Pere Lachaise

While I was at Pere Lachaise looking at the new glass wall installed around Oscar Wilde’s tomb, I looked around at other objects while the sun was out. It was raining off and on all day and there was only a window of about thirty minutes before the rain and dark skies returned.


A kitty cat. There are quite a few living in the cemetery and they are all wild and won’t let you get near them.


Isn’t this unusual? It was on a door of the area where ashes are kept near the crematorium.


A permanent flower.


I like this tomb. I’ve taken photos of it before. It looks like the weather is slowing erasing it though.


I always thinks this tomb looks a little scary.

  1. I think most tombs look kind of scary, but I suppose that was more popular in the past. The tips of those fingers breaking through the dome are kind of bizarre. Is the dead person trying to escape…or is it a symbol for something?
