I’m interested in cemeteries and would have loved to have gone to “Père la Chaise”. Unfortunately it was too far away and I didn’t have time. However, we were staying in Montparnasse and the Montparnasse cemetery is almost as famous so I decided to walk over and take a look. These pictures were taken during this short walk. Above the “Café Daguerre“. As a photographer with an interest in the history of photography the name caught my attention. I would have stopped for a coffee, but it was closed.

One of the famous Parisian Metro stops. It was deserted as all public transportation was on strike during our visit, making it extremely difficult to get around.

The Lion of Belfort is a bronze sculpture by Auguste Bartholdi that stands below the castle of Belfort in Franche-Comté (north-eastern France). Paris also has its Lion de Belfort, which is a smaller replica of the monumental statue. You will find it at the middle of the square of Place Denfert-Rochereau in Paris (14th arrondissement).
