Photographer's Note

I cry for those in the Middle East, who live in a constant state of anxiety, in search of refuge in a place where none exists. I cry for the citizens of New Orleans, left behind by a government distracted elsewhere. I cry for the African child who loses both parents to AIDS, an orphan on unsteady feet in an unsteady world. If you think about it, there is much to cry about, but after you cry a little, look for the little glimmer of hope in those tears. I only hope that we can save each other, love each other and find ways to change our planet for the better. What other option do we have?

Photo taken at Pere Lachaise Cemetery as described below:

The Cimetiere du Pere-Lachaise is a short metro ride from the center of Paris and a photographer's dream. Famously known as the final resting place of singer Jim Morrison, it covers more than 110 acres.

Others buried here include Sarah Bernhardt, Oscar Wilde, Balzac, Delacroix, Chopin, Moliere and Edith Piaf. When you enter the cemetery, maps detail famous gravesites, but it is wise to buy those sold by street vendors, as this is an easy place to get lost!
