Notre Dame Cathedral Commencement of Mass: In memory of April 15, 2019 fire

notre dame cathedral commencement of mass paris
Watching yesterday’s fire at Notre Dame Cathedral was gut wrenching and brought back memories of our visit in 2015. This is the start of Mass… really like the contrast between the procession, the tourists, the smoke from the incense and the natural light coming in through the windows. Regardless of your faith, this Cathedral is stunning and the heart and soul of Paris and France.

Food is better eaten than photographed, however this is one of those few exceptions. On a walk through Paris’ Marais district, we stopped in a charcuterie to buy some deli meat, and while being served, I saw this hand made artisan pizza that looked delicious. So I took the picture!

The Eiffel Tower is one of those iconic symbols that is mesmerizing to look at, day and night. Was in Paris for a work event, taking time to tour the city before things got started. This is looking South East from the edge of Jardins du Trocadero across Pont d’Iena, using a 3.2 second time lapse to create the blurring light effect from car taillights.

While walking the streets of Paris this spring, we came across a flower market. As travelers, we were not about to buy and carry, however a striking photo will surely do!  Feel free to share with the person you love the most.

Selfie Mayhem With The Mona Lisa

The scene unfolding in front of the Mona Lisa at The Louvre in Paris… complete mayhem with people attempting to take a selfie with the famous picture. This capture is more entertaining than a photo of ‘her’!  Couple other observations… the Mona Lisa is really small vs. what you would expect, and people would rather have a photo to say they were ‘there’ vs. actually taking in the art.
