Sunday Church Series - Église Saint-Séverin



Oh I've brought you here to the Église Saint- Séverin with me many times. I love, love this beautiful church.  Today one more little alcove with a side door that caught my eye.  As I reviewed this photograph I marveled at the gorgeous mural and the details of the doors, the sloping floor with the light under the door, and the time worn plaster work.  I'm grateful for my photographs, for often they allow me to spend more "time" in places that too often I must hurry through.

 Bon demanche mes amis.

The light under the door was what struck my eye first, then all the other wonderful details in this great shot.
Know just what you mean, V—the shots of the recent Italy trip (all 2,000+ of them) are scrolling across my desktop right now. Bon dimanche!

This church has so many details that call me back time after time. You have captured the scene perfectly. Let's go again.

I saw your comment on Laurent"s blog. Reading Le Monde is a great way to learn French and you can see it online:

Alexa,
The light under the door did it for me as well. Your Italy photos are wonderful.

Genie,
I can't wait to do Paris with you again mon amie.


Chieftess,
I'm glad you liked it as much as I did!

Starman,
Darlin, I can't read DICK AND JANE, much less le Monde in French! I wish I could. I think it's just beyond my reach. I fear I must still rely on my smile and Southern charm to get along in Paris. HA

Oh so beautiful, so worn, so old. Ah!

Somehow V, I think that Southern charm works wonders for you in any country in any language!!!

I know exactly what you mean. I have often looked at my photographs and thought, "Why didn't I spend more time there...?"

And Virginia, indeed ~ a smile, a bonjour, a merci, a s'il vous plaît will take you everywhere :-)
