Notre Dame

It’s quite difficult to get a good shot of Notre Dame at the moment. It’s approaching their 850th anniversary, and as a consequence a load of temporary seating has been erected on scaffolding in the square in front of the Cathedral.

I managed to take this shot from the bridge onto the Ile de la Cite. Three exposures.

I particularly like the effect of the cloudy skies; little did I know that they would shortly clear to a dramatic sunset – but more of that to come in the next few days! Hopefully the blue scaffolding isn’t too distracting…

Parisien Architecture

One thing I like about Paris is the architecture. As Ana said whilst we were on our way from the station to the hotel: “It’s very French!”. When you’re there, take the time to stop and look around you. Look up especially.

This building was close to our hotel, in Le Peletier.

Architecture

I particularly like the shape of the building, also the ornate balcony rails that wrap around each floor.
