Memories of Paris #1: Oscar Wilde's Tomb

with kisses from his fans, at the Cimetiere du Pere Lachaise, Paris, 20th arrondissement. July 2002.


  1. That is bizarre, but somehow oddly fitting.

    Can't say I'm a Wilde fan though... I read "The Picture of Dorian Gray" some years ago and suffered from an overload of witty epigrams as a result. ;)

  2. I like the graphics of it, although the colours don't come through as well. this is from a scanned Ektachrome. I'm still looking for the Jim Morrison image. Pere Lachaise reminds me of Philippine cemeteries: a very lively place.
    It's oddly fitting because of the state of mind I'm in... death seems oddly familiar, and so not as strange and alien.
