cimetière du père lachaise, paris, france

two guards of the paris´ municipality watch over the grave of jim (james douglas) morrison, where fans are still depositing flowers, letters, joints and whisky bottles. The picture was taken 13096 days after jim´s death and 5 days after neo-conservative candidate nicolas sarkozy was elected as new french president.

the engraving in jim´s tombstone is «KATA TON ΔAIMONA EAYTOY». it is questionable whether he expected the presence of guards as well as the prospective political orientation of france.
