Thank you all for your suggestions. I did make it out to Pere Lachaise but the Holga misfired... either that or I was waving my arms around while taking photos (wouldn't be the first time)... will def. go back before I go back to Ireland.
Great links - don't know either artists and look forward to noodling around their sites to get inspiration and technique.
went to the louvre today. best photo: i jumped in front of 100 tourists snapping pix of the venus de milo with their camera / digital photos and took *their* picture. it was hilarious! they got a picture of me... instead of venus... but even better i got them completely unawares. not something i can repeat. they just thought i was a crazy american. i didn't correct them!
