    My wife and I visited Paris over Thanksgiving week. It was a first visit for both of us and we were both taken aback by the absolute beauty of this great city. As you may imagine, many photos were taken.

    On the very last day of the trip, I decided to indulge my fascination with cemeteries (as photographic subjects) and visited Cimetiere Pere-Lachaise. Of course, we followed the map and visited some of the more notable graves (including that of Mr. James Morrison). Here are some of my favorite photos from the visit:
