Notre Dame Cathedral

During a visit to Paris in May, for a photography workshop with Peter Turnley, I had a couple of opportunities to visit Notre Dame. Arrive early to beat the tour bus crowds. If you do so, you'll have a sense of the peaceful majesty of this place.

As a place of worship, it is awe-inspiring. As an architectural monument, it is truly awesome. To hear the music reverberating through this space, one can imagine the purposefulness of its design.
