Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. Canon T-70 (what a camera!)

I took this photo of Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris thirty-five years ago. A lifetime ago!

The Smiths’ ‘Cemetry Gates’ had not been released then, but I had the maudlin vibe down pat. I was living in London at the time, eighteen, in love, no grey hair or anything!

The wonderful thing about photography is those moments are kept forever. My memory is okay, despite the substance abuse, but nothing compares to a photograph that takes you back to the very time and place of your youth.

Best wishes until next time,

Don

    1. Thanks you SO much Vicky. The photography gods were on my side that day…I must find which film I used because the other shots from that day were richly coloured and again with a wide tonal range.

      I love that quote!
