Cemetery Montparnasse 20131230

Author 'Lumixane' (Id 202855 ) : The Tower poses for the photographer, while ensuring the rest of the souls.
Metro tickets stabilized by a stone are deposited in the tombs of celebrities, such as Sartre/de Beauvoir. If someone could give me the meaning, the origin of this custom ? A tribute as another...
The storm the following night had the whole sweep

The N &B is quite appropriate for this photo and your framing is well seen . The photographer is well, come in this composition and it will have a view less 'wide' than yours. What is the origin of metro tickets, I saw that there are assumptions, but no certainty . A very beautiful image

Very nice picture where you have managed to highlight the different elements that compose it. The choice of the N&B is a good idea. Anne and thank you.

Totally agree with Perronnet Catherine.
However, in this image, the interest comes from the superposition of heterogeneous elements (the modern tower of the houses of the 19th century, the houses of the dead), and the opposition between the photographer and the statue of the woman tearfully facing each other with hands raised in front of the face.
In addition it is one of the few photos in the Eif where a living character has an important role.

An interesting photo, and that by his description and the answers are all the same... The great Jacques Brel told him... 'I have brought you candy Because flowers is perishable'... Who knows maybe it was pebbles. Happy birthday Anne !

Thank you for your contribution, which comes to support the subject, Danièle. I had not thought of the song of jacques Brel, about

Hello Lumixane, I just speak from your photos with a surprise visit from Lebanon in Switzerland. We are both fans. A little human on EIF it's good for you. Nice render NB. A photo altogether banal. Why is this the first that caught my eye ? I wish you all well for 2014 and continues to regale us and inspire us.

I have surveyed this place, there are a lot of young people who came to past radio hooks, to the Gaite Montparnasse, I have a friend, who always sings, not famous but a lot of talent !!!
I've seen artists !!!
For the metro tickets, this is a tribute to Serge Gainsbourg, 'Le poinçonneur des Lilas'
I love this N/B, which goes well with the history of this area !!!
Bravo !!!

The metro tickets in the deposit : thank you Mamy, your explanation makes sense Many are fans of Gainsbourg.

More Gainsbourg was the son of Russian jews, so the pebbles hold the road too, if I may say so... but I don't see the connection with the tomb of jean-paul Sartre, who had a great father-a protestant and another catholic and I do not see the connection with the metro. A phenomenon of mimicry, without a doubt ! (Exc).

to return To the tickets, the wind takes them everywhere, so they are delivered at random, (and in the song ; he made holes in it and still wee holes !!)
There are even some hanging from the bouquets of flowers with pins !!!

I admire the talent with which you manage to get a photo aesthetic and interesting from the elements that was not !
> Chasseur de temps [G] [P] [C] [F] >Reply Dec 31, 2013
You have managed to capture and put in value very simply all the elements which gave to the captured image, in this place, an evocative little bit common in this period, where the eye is especially sought by the glitter and the ephemeral I hope that it will be heard.
The pleasure of meeting you once crossing this time of turmoil ever festive for everyone.

Anne for the metro ticket, I don't know. It is a jewish custom of dropping a pebble on a headstone to pay tribute to. A pebble because it is made to last, unlike a flower that fades. But for the metro ticket ??? By way of protection, like a placemat ? (this is a gratuitous assumption). To return to the rock, jean-paul Sartre had refused the Nobel prize for Literature, however he had accepted the title of Doctor Honoris Causa of the university of Jerusalem. He was a cousin by his mother of the Doctor Albert Schweitzer ! (Exc).

My coach and I have noted the impressive number of jewish tombs around us. I thought that the symbolism was more in the ticket than in the pebble but with a bunch of pebbles, it would not be bad either for the benefits it presents. Thank you for your enlightened commentary, Jean-Claude.
The ticket in recognition of the approach to make on such and such a grave... ? Each person has their own interpretation. One could add the tickets of train or plane, according to

It is your husband this gentleman ? It was beautiful to look at. Nice photo N&B a part of this cemetery.

This gentleman has a beautiful appearance indeed, Guylaine, a féiste parisian who always has interesting places to me to discover each of my passages, not that cemeteries...
I owe him a debt
