Photographer's Note

This photo was taken in the Pere Lachaise Cemetery, in Paris.

I found the place serene, beautiful, and what I'd always imagined a cemetery to be. Crows squawking, owls hooting, leaves blowing along the cobblestone paths..between moss covered graves on rolling hills. I thought it would be terrifying, but it honestly was beautiful, and the cemetery gives you a lovely glimpse into French history. There are graves from Napoleon era (and earlier) people, as well as more modern graves.

This particular shot was taken of a doorway leading into a small tomb. I tried re-setting the beautiful door handle to be perfectly straight, but it just didn't feel right, so I kept my first shot - this one.
