Cemeteries are fascinating places; reminds me to do some visits before the snow flies.

People died quite young in those days, poor Winnifred!

How sad, and contemplative.

There is a similar statue of a young woman, with her dog, in the Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires.

She was greatly missed, wasn't she? I don't know about you, brattcat, but I am not expecting my family to have a statue of me erected when my time comes.

OH I"m doing a series of photographs of Passy for My French Life and realized that I've come along way. For many visits, I felt a little like an outsider at the cemeteries. Now I enjoy them more for t heir lovely details. Of course your choice is perfect.

Cemetery art is so moving. I saw a television programme one time on the sculptures in American cemeteries. I think the programme was called 'Dead Art' loved it. Your lady is beautiful.
