Paris Views from July 2010
Montparnasse Cemetary, on the southeast side of Paris, contains graves of many artists and intellectuals. See the list on Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montparnasse_Cemetery
One of our most beloved is Jacques Demy, the film director of 'Umbrellas of Cherbourg' and 'Les Demoiselles de Rochefourt.' See description at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacques_Demy
The French man below likes to talk to people who come visit the cemetary.
Grafiti above is stylish.
Ladies even dress up to go to cinema, below.
Image above is taken around 10 pm (22:00) in front of the Cinematheque, the state-funded film society that archives movies and shows them to the public.
