Sunday Paris Church Series - Église de la Sainte-Trinité


The Église de la Sainte-Trinité houses not one but two organs. I think the bell tower is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen, and that cobalt blue sky at dusk made it more so.

I am spending my Sunday afternoon with your photos. Then I am going to sleep a little bit or read.
Have a nice Sunday!

Adeeya,
It is in the 9eme. I fixed the link so you could see it.

M,
It had raine most of the day and we were awestruck when the skies brightened then turned this fabulous bleu.

Èva,
I'm glad you enjoy my photos. BTW, my granddaughter's name is Eva!

Virginia, your blue skies really emphasize the details of this exquisite tower... This is a place that captivates and makes a camera happy in all seasons.

Very nice,
G

One of the most beautiful? You're preaching to the choir here—so to speak! Bon dimanche, mon amie.

La Sainte-Trinité is one of the most beautiful, but there are so many equally as beautiful. The only time we tried to enter, it was closed.

Sigh. Another week not spent in Paris. Thanks for your pics, V.
