On this trip to Paris, it was actually sunny most of the time, which is quite a change from the usual overcast skies in November or early spring I’ve experienced. I’ve taken hundreds of cemetery photos before but the bright sun added a new and sometimes challenging aspect to photographing graves and crypts. The shadows were sometimes interesting but it was really too bright to take many great photographs unless there was a bit of shade to ameliorate the sun. There was one interesting exception – the stained glass windows at the back of many crypts were actually visible in many of the photos I took. And oddly, many of them were blue, which I hadn’t noticed till I looked back at the whole set.
