Paris Rouge XXX - Afternoon Light


Today, another church in Paris, the lovely Église St. Paul- St. Louis in the Marais. I've been fortunate to photograph this church on several visits. This is a side entrance. The afternoon sun on the door and tiles was nice I thought.

Beautiful - such rich colours. One of those images where the constraints of the photo 'frame' really help concentrate one's eye on the details.

red+door+old wood+harlequin tile = fabulous composition!

The eye of the artist.

Rouge is your color today! This is just beautiful, V. You've got a great eye!

Thank you all. I love this church. It's starting to feel like home I've been there so often. Not a really fancy one as Paris churches go, but lovely nonetheless. Since I stayed just blocks from here on this last trip, I took advantage!

Parfait!

What is it about old wood, old paint and tile, that's so compelling? I love those details.

I love this church, and you captured its beauty perfectly just by showing this one small corner. Very, very nice!

Very moody. I like it. I know it isn't true, but I often feel that the light in Paris is different somehow....
