Sunday Church Series - Église St. Roch

284


The view of the church from our living room window in our apartment. I never, ever tire of the view or the chiming of the bells.

Love the wavy window with the church behind it.

C'est dans ce quartier de St Roch, qu' Edgar Poe situa une de ses nouvelles : "Double assassinat dans la Rue Morgue", "l'un de ces misérables passages qui relient la Rue de Richelieu à la Rue Saint Roch". A cette époque (1841) l'avenue de l'Opéra n'existait pas encore puisqu'elle ne fut percée par Haussman qu'en 1877.

Nice reflection!!! Or is it the view refracted by wavy glass???

Mary said...

Of course you don't tire of it! Who would? lol Beautiful photograph.

Bob Crowe said...

Clever and effective composition. It's got a watery look. Makes me thing of a Debussy piece, The Engulfed Cathedral.

Harriet said...

Your new banner photo is fabulous. That water reflection of the lights is magical.

Wonderful view through that old glass! And I'm with you on the bells—even if they woke me at dawn.

I love this, and the rippled glass.

Very creative shot Virginia!

Adorable picture, thank you for sharing many times. I mostly adore photos taken through a mosaic, ornamental, colorful windows like this photo taken in Toronto , but yours has bigger quality, because it's really original. I love the distortion, you're really talented.
