Le Croix II - Cimetière Église Saint Germain de Charonne



This small cemetery behind the church was well cared for and we found some lovely monuments and crosses

The cross is exquisite and the statue of the young woman is truly beautiful. What a find! I love the play of shadows that is magnified in B&W.

Timeless image Virginia, both the cross and the statue belong in another era, the sepia captures that perfectly.
