Église St. François de Sales


Today another church in Paris that I had not visited previously. As Marie, Genie and I walked back to our Métro from lunch in the 17eme, we passed this church, and I asked if we could stop in for just a few minutes. I'm always surprised and delighted at every church I've visited in Paris and in the countryside. They are all special in their own way.

They definitely are special in their own way; and that's what makes them so beautiful!

Je suis née à Paris mais je crois que, grâce à vous, je vais découvrir des endroits !
Moi aussi, j'aime visiter les églises!

Fire,
You are right. Each is special in a different way.

Claudine,
Peut-être! :)

You've captured the serenity that's found in Parisian churches (though you might have to climb up to the belltower like Quasimodo to find it in Notre Dame). This shot works for Shadow Shot Sunday too. :~}

Love the shadows. What was the source of the light?

The shadows make this a very interesting photo. I love the face of the angel too.

Are there churches that are not beautiful?

I like to go in every church that I see in Paris but I've never seen this one. I like the shadows and the reflection on the wall.



You will be able to see plenty of pictures from my next trip.
My goal is make 80 to 90% of the posts on my Something Sighted blog about Paris starting this November and hopefully lasting at least a year.
Because I'm either in Paris or thinking about going to Paris. :)

James,
We will wait for your wonderful Paris photos and enjoy your visit with you.

Starman,
Now that i think about it, I'm not sure where the light came from. I had no flash so maybe a window? I loved , loved the shadows.

Couldn't agree more. I haven't wandered into one I haven't found interesting yet. :-)
