Montparnasse Cemetery – Part 2

I’m still going through the photographs I took in Paris and thought I’d share more shots from Montparnasse Cemetery. It was a very bright, sunny day and quite a challenge to find spots that weren’t too shadowed or too bright.

When you travel, are there certain things you always take photos of?


Montparnasse Cemetery, Paris

Cemeteries can be beautiful, peaceful places to walk, meditate on life, and appreciate interesting art. One of my favorites is Cimetière du Montparnasse in Paris. It’s in the 14th arondissement, which is where we daydream about living someday. Some of the famous people buried here are Simone de Beauvoir, Susan Sontag, and Man Ray.

Here are some of my favorite photos from Montparnasse on our first visit.
