BETTER LATE THAN NEVER - PART 1



Okay, I'm finally getting around to showing some of my pictures that I took while I was in my dream city of Paris. I finally have my scanner hooked back up and with my new lap-top, I felt that it was time. James, sorry it took so long!

First view of Notre Dame as I'm standing on one of the many bridges that cross over the Seine. I didn't notice it until after I had the pictures developed, but I love the way the red dress on the lady sets against the other colors in the photo.



Standing on the same bridge; just at a different angle.

This is one of the boats that you can get on to take a cruise down the Seine. I decided not to as I was on a mission to see Notre Dame.

Once I left the bridge, I walked down one of the streets that is behind the chruch. I love the way the greenery hangs over the wall.


Coming up to another bridge that takes you over to the church. You really can't tell in this photo, but there was a lot of people on the bridge. Some man was performing one-man musical numbers to get money. Speaking of musical numbers, one time when I was underground going to the Metro, there was this male violinist playing some of the most beautiful music I think I've ever heard. I tipped him quite well from what I remember.


Once you cross over the bridge, you're pretty much at Notre Dame. Of course, this is the back of the church. I think I was just as impressed with the back as I was with the front.


Just another view.


Off to the side, there's an area that you can sit and rest or just watch people.

After leaving the back, I walked down one side of it. Above you can see some of the many gargoyles that are a part of the church. From what I've read, they're decorative ways to run the rain water off of the roof of the chruch.



Of course this is the front.


The front, taking further back.
On the knitting front, I'm still working on my afghan/throw for my friend, plus I've started one for myself so that I can use up some of my yarn stash. More pictures of Paris to follow.
