The grave of ballerina Marie Tagioni at the Montmartre cemetery in Paris, where young dancers still leave their dancing shoes and flowers. Marie Taglioni pioneered the en pointe style of dance which characterises ballet today.
"To make exacting precise tedious and courageous and passionate appear graceful effortless gorgeous and poignant and profound is the gift of the prima ballerina and the Champagne Girl to the world. " #marygiuseffiquotes
I could not find where the name of the photographer was listed for this photo or I would have given them credit for it. What a fantastic pic! The photog was able to capture the tom-boy on the right, even the way the leg is shaped, and the feminine dancer on the left with grace and elegance. Fabulous shot and design!
