Sainte Geneviève des Bois
a Russian Cemetery

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.
