Out of the Jurisdiction: Paris Sampler

Other bloggers have devoted years to showing photographs from Paris.  I don't want to compete.  Sure, over the next few days, I will also probably show an iconic scene or two.
But, mostly I am thinking about showing some details that I liked.


Paris' oldest clock, erected in 1370 at the Conciergerie.


Columns and decoration in the Sainte Chappelle chapel.


Madonna and Child.  Over the center entrance of Cathédral Notre Dame de Paris.


Curious?  Neighborly?  Maybe a bit of both.



One of a pair of griffins in the monument to St. Michel.

You've stitched your sampler very neatly, Jack. The lady at the window obviously finds her neighbours more interesting than an American with a camera.

Hope you went into Sainte Chappelle. A jewel box.

Pretty good sampler. The second one reminds me of bolts of fabric.

Marvelous! Don't worry about competing, there is enough in Paris to go around!

Kay said...

I just checked in to see what you've been up to. France!! How exciting! Your Parisian shots capture so much of the detail that makes it beautiful! Bon voyage!

So much richness and elegance in Paris. Interesting people-watching, too.

Beautiful photos. Lovely details that make us want to see more! I love how everyone sees Paris so differently through the eye of their camera, even when photographing the same subject.
