Shot at the Père Lachaise cemetery. I like the effect this Lytar lens gives to pictures. It's "vintaging" everything, especially thanks to it natural vignetting. I found it quite appropriate for this picture of the tombstone of one of our presidents... It seems like some ancient tomb, buried under the years.
