Don't be ashamed to weep; 'tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.
~ Brian Jacques, Taggerung
I shot this in Montparnasse Cemetery in Paris, France. It was a lovely day to experience the beauty and art that lies within the confines of the cemetery walls.
Cemeteries in France are like walking in art-filled parks, allowing you to breath in the serenity and sorrow that lies deep within the graves. Some graves bring nostalgia and contemplation to mind, while others bring humor to the fore.
I never thought I would appreciate cemeteries the way I do until I visited Paris.
