Thanks, glad you like them… 🙂

I always wondered what Eleanor Rigby looked like. Now, I know. Thank you for showing me all these terrific sculptures. Next time I am in Paris I will visit Monmartre cemetery 🙂
I found it fascinating too – and the old singer Tommy Steele have made it… 🙂
The Montmartre Cemetery are worth visiting
so many impressive sculptures and statues… 🙂
These sculptures are all wonderful and I love the photo of the first one inside the water with the natural three behind it, great contrast 🙂 !
The first one I have known since I was a little tiny boy – my mum love to tell about how many times she have to pull or push her little boy away from the sculpture when we visited the city of Aarhus – it isn’t always easy to be a mum… “lol lol” 😉 😉
Yes I I can totally confirm, lovely memory to keep 🙂 !
