Some odd shots (3)

My "macular hole" eye operation seems to give some postive results, but time is needed to know the final outcome. In the meantime I prefer to take it easy with blogging and continue thus to publish some odd shots. The first one today is from Place de Trocadéro - the wall behind which you will find the Passy Cemetery. There is a "Monument aux Morts" by Paul Landowski (also known for "Christ the Redeemer" in Rio de Janeiro).


Two photos from the Père Lachaise Cemetery (which I believe have already been in a collage). The first one is the tomb of a 13 years old girl (1907-20).

Cemeteries can be wonderful art houses particularly with your photographic skills. Père Lachaise Cemetery is a favourite part of the Paris I know (albeit limited), but I have yet to visit Passy Cemetery. Wishing you every success with your operation.
Warm regards

Hello Peter. I am so glad your surgery went well, and you are getting some good results already. I am sure you will have 100% results!

La perspective est trompeuse : le pigeon et le monument paraissent normaux mais les passants sont minuscules.

Great shots. I like the last one in which nature is trying to conquer man's creation.

You are too generous to keep us gratified with your photos during your recovery. But I love it and do look forward to them. Healing requires rest, don't forget.
