Sunday Church Series - Our Lady


Photographing the magnificent Cathèdrale Notre Dame de Paris is daunting.  I like to find details such as this chandelier that seems to crown the Blessed Virgin.

A Stunning photo. I wish it were mine, - I was unable to get such clarity when I was photographing these windows.

Oh I thank you all for your nice comments. This church is one I visited early in my trips to Paris and since the lines are usually long, have not revisited in a while. It's a treasure and I am pleased you liked this photograph.

Beautiful capture! I haven't visited Cathedrale N D in a long time either, so it's nice to be reminded of the beauty.

Avec une couronne comme ça, elle va prendre la grosse tête.
