The Grim Reader

Hanging around in a graveyard reading a book, there is no other title I could really have used for this post…right?

This lady was enjoying the warm weather in Paris by sitting in Père Lachaise Cemetery reading. I wonder if reading spot chosen was done so purely because it was vacant and in the sun, or if the graves nearby had any significance. I didn’t ask, nor did I get the chance to see which book it was that she was reading.

I did think it was a pretty cool scene though, and was lucky enough to snap away a few times with my long lens without being caught by the subject.

In other news I’ve decided to head out to Helsinki for the weekend. No idea what there is to do there, but it will be nice to see it and walk around checking out what it does have on offer 🙂
