Sainte Geneviève des Bois

The Russian Orthodox Cemetery is not highly regarded by the locals of this small town and many do not even know of its existence.  I made the trip to see the tombstone of Rudolph Nureuev and found the carpet of fallen ginko leaves as a bonus.  

Wherever I have traveled in the world, I visit and photograph the cemeteries.  Although this cemetery is not well-maintained, there was a quiet beauty of the season, silent and colorful with autumn leaves.
