Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris

Published this post six years ago today – hoping that something can be salvaged from this evenings disaster.

Notwithstanding the wonderful sights of Paris, this was my favourite landmark by far.  For those of you who have visited, what more can I say?  For those of you who have not, make sure it’s moved to the top of your ‘places to visit’ list.

Paris – Au Revoir

Finally, the last post of my memorable trip to Paris.  The results could have been better if I had remembered my tripod, which as you know is crucial when working with very low light. So hand held it was (could do better John, tut tut!)  Merci, Paris, but time to move on and other subjects to explore.  Enjoy.

Paris – Place de la Concorde

As you will see from the few shots I have taken, it was a very dull and overcast day indeed. Only a short stroll from the Louvre and with great views towards the Champs-Élysées, the  Place de la Concorde and its obelisk is yet another stop to add to your itinerary.

Paris – Église Saint-Étienne-du-Mont

This beautiful little Gothic church was found just behind the Pantheon.  As you will see, my timing left a lot to be desired as the church was closed and undergoing its daily clean.  Had I the time, I most certainly would have returned to enjoy this little gem.

Musée du Louvre

Here are a few shots of the mighty and hugely impressive Musée du Louvre.  We were lucky enough to be staying opposite, so I had another opportunity for a visit when the sunshine arrived, otherwise the results would have been very dull indeed.  We had a lot of places to visit during our short stay, so we didn’t actually go into the Museum – if the inside is anything like the outside then I  guess you would need a couple of days to fully appreciate the 400,000 or so items of art and historical objects.  Next time, perhaps.

Out and about in Paris

Continuing the Paris theme, here are a few shots that I couldn’t fit into individual posts. I hope you find them interesting,

Paris – Arc de Triomphe

Another iconic Paris locale with great all round views of Paris.  The view from the bottom of the Avenue des Champs-Élysées to the Arc is particularly evocative.  The fact that it is situated in the middle of an extremely busy roundabout does not detract from its supreme stature; indeed, it simply enhances the romanticism that surrounds this unique landmark.

Paris – The Panthéon

The Pantheon is, without doubt, a colossus of a building and one of the most imposing monuments in Paris.. The interior is incredibly ornate and detailed, with wonderful frescoes on the walls.  It also houses the Foucault pendulum, which demonstrates the rotation of the earth via a brass plated pendulum suspended from the dome of the Pantheon.  The crypt below is also impressive and is the final resting place for many of France’s renowned writers, poets and scientists, including Jean Moulin, Victor Hugo and Marie Curie.
