More Paris Photos

Today, I’d like to share some more photos that I took inside Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. As I mentioned in my previous post, we visited in 2007 and we had a truly great time. There is so much beauty to see in Paris, as I'm sure you know. Brit Boy and I want to go back someday and see more. I know we only scratched the surface.

Notre Dame was just breathtaking. Even though there were loads of people inside the cathedral, it never felt particularly crowded. People were talking but they talked in a wonderfully hushed tone, so that it felt as if you were one of only a handful of people there as you took in the beauty of the place. There is not a lot of artificial light inside the cathedral and I think it just adds to the whole experience. The glow from the candles and the outside light streaming in gave everything a serene feeling.

Here are more views of the glorious windows and the beautiful architecture.









Getting a chance to see this beautiful cathedral was an amazing experience that I’ll never forget and I’m glad I could share a bit of it with you :-)

I always like to think and imagine all the years of work and toil it took to build these structures. All the intricate craftsmanship -- I mean, you really had to be a MASTER of your craft to create some of the sculptures and artwork found in these cathedrals and old edifices.
Seriously! They are all so perfect, it's hard to imagine how they got it all done. And all without the help of modern technology! ;)

Great pics as usual, Dori! ;)
