Beautiful! I would love to visit Paris one day, and in particular this cemetery.

It is not so much the statue that catches my eye, it is your technique of using your camera that I find really interesting.... You must tell me the trick... :)

You have created a wonderful mood with your treatment of that photo :-)

It's certainly impressive. I think I told you I once went round Père Lachaise trying to find Piaf's grave and swearing because people don't die in alphabetical order?

Thanks everyone.

Modern Mom the statue is in teh Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. It is a place that you can spend hours in!

nevin the photo has been manipulated. I played aroudn with light balance, brightness, contrast and colour saturation. Basically I darkened and washed out the colour to make it look a little more melancholy

Beautiful and expressive. There is something that just seems more familiar and less remote about her than some of the other statues I see.
