Père Lachaise Cemetery, Paris

I mentioned prior to leaving for Europe that a couple friends suggested I check out Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. It is the cemetery where Edith Piaf, Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison, and many noteworthy artists, writers, dancers, and musicians are buried. It was our last day in Paris and the weather was beautifully gray. Perfect for visiting this amazing cemetery. I was working on my photography skills with a new lense and our whole visit was incredibly picturesque. I've edited down the many photos that I took to give you an idea of how beautiful this place was.

We walked on to the cemetery grounds and  all 3 of us (Kelli, my brother Garrett, and I) were in awe at the site of the many grand and intricate tombs and grave stones. The vast expanse of these large structures with all their architectural details and narrow pathways in between made the cemetery feel like its own little city.

There was this adorable empty metal frame on a post, so we decided to do a little photo shoot action.

Kelli and her yellow mittens made such a perfect model.

There was so much beauty in the details, I would highly recommend Père Lachaise Cemetery the next time you go to Paris, especially for anyone looking for design or artistic inspiration.
