The Prayer

There are so many beautiful sights in Paris but with only 2 days to visit I couldn’t possible see all of them. One that I did get too however was Notre Dame Cathedral.

I have a few images of the cathedral to share with you but I thought I’d start with one of my favourites that I captured.

This was shot handheld at an ISO of 3200. I used Topaz DeNoise to clean up some of the noise. You can use coupon code ELPHOTO to get 15% off any Topaz product.

  1. Whistlestop tours of Paris never offer as much of the city as you would like! I’ve seen the outside of Notre Dame, but not the inside!

    • That’s true. It was a quick stop as our focus was Italy but 2 days was better then nothing and I’ve been to Paris before.

  2. Wow!! What an absolutely perfect capture. Our hotel is about an 8 minute walk from there. I can’t wait! Don’t forget – if you have any tips, I would love to hear them.

    • Thanks Cindy. I’ve been meaning to sit down a write a longer blog post on Paris but with the flood in my basement and the clean up that’s happening now I just haven’t had a chance. If there’s anything you want to know or if you have any questions let me know.

      • No worries Edith. I know what cleaning up a flooded basement is like. We’ve got more than enough things to fill our short time in Paris, so I think we’re good :). Any restaurant recommendations (not too expensive) would be welcome though.

        • Oh I wish I could remember actual names of restaurants. The beauty of Paris (and Italy) is the number of restaurants and cafes on every straight. I can honestly say we did not have a bad meal. One of our favorite activities was actually sitting at an outside table enjoying good food and wine and watching the activity on the street.

  3. Wow, just look at the detail you were still able to capture in the stain glass window.

  4. Paris is a marvel of the Western world. I LOVE it. I’m thrilled that you had at least some time there to appreciate its culture, food, people and architecture.

  6. You made an excellent choice in choosing this place. It had to be frustrating with so many to pick from huh?! My daughter went to Notre Dame College in the states and this place holds a special place in our hearts because of that. Great pics.

    So this was right time, right place in terms of that prayer?
    wow that is lovely.
    The stained glass and the architecture are just so beautifully photographed, Edith. Thanks for taking us there.
