There’s just something special about Paris, though I am not the first to note that. Maybe the second. ;-) But I just found so many wonderful things to photograph there, and I crammed in as much as I could in 5 days.
This church is in the Marais district and was near the apartment we rented. We would walk to the Metro station, and I kept seeing this church, although it was difficult to ascertain much about it as only the front facade is exposed to the street. But it’s a grand facade, so I felt sure the inside would be worth a look. Finally curiosity got the best of me one day, and I walked in.
I’m really glad that I did, because it is incredible. Although I took a couple of snaps on that visit, I vowed to come back and do it justice when I had a little more time. It was on our last day in Paris that I took this shot. Finally I had found the church mostly empty, and I fired away. I’m glad I did.
By the way, the name of the church is St Paul St Louis and I have it listed here on the blog in my list of Top Photo Spots in Paris.
