7. We'll have to put that on the list

for our next trip. Our first cathedral visit was to the Cathedral of Saint Stephen in Metz. We were truly floored with the beauty of not only the stained glass, but the architecture.

8. I highly recommend seeing this place!

I hope you take digital photos. Film (for me) meant disappointment in the quality of the photos. Digital makes it easier!

I'm glad my photos inspired you!

15. Sainte Chapelle is not to be missed! Though with Notre Dame closed it's gonna be crowded...

And if I might humbly add, the Palais Garnier. Two buildings I shall never forget experiencing.

17. Buy or rent a hard-hat and maybe you can get into Notre Dame, at least when

Mass is being celebrated.

13. You'll have to take it up with the craftspeople!

That's how they wanted things to look. Maybe they thought heaven would look that way.

12. Thanks for the pics! Really lovely!

One regret of my life is that when in my early 20's I lived 300 miles from Paris for two years and never went there. Had a husband at the time who was pretty good about driving some places but not too keen on getting out of the car to look around. So your pics are really special!! Thanks😀

14. I hear you, my dear HeiressofBickworth!

It would have been tough getting him to take you there. I'm glad that these photos are making you happy...

My husband and I have been to Paris several times, and this time, he didn't want to go. So I asked my niece to go with me, and we made the trip. I really wanted to get some good photos and I'm happy with these. It was definitely worth all the money I spent!

I could be packed by morning! Can’t wait to get back.

18. Thank you for sharing these gorgeous photos, California Peggy!

2 Questions:

1. Where in Paris is Ste. Chapelle located?
2. The image of the person with a sword between his teeth? Who does it represent? Is it God the Father; is it Jesus; or another I don't recognize?

21. The image is from the Book of Revelation in the Bible, Chapter 1, Vs 12-16


12Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking with me. And having turned, I saw seven golden lampstands, 13and among the lampstands was One like the Son of Man, dressed in a long robe, with a golden sash around His chest. 14The hair of His head was white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes were like a blazing fire. 15His feet were like polished bronze refined in a furnace, and His voice was like the roar of many waters. 16He held in His right hand seven stars, and a sharp double-edged sword came from His mouth. His face was like the sun shining at its brightest.

I've no idea where in Paris Ste. Chapelle is located. I think if I ever went there, I wouldn't want to leave!
How miraculous that such a fragile wonder has survived all the wars and revolutions since it was built.

California Peggy has (as always) done us all a big favor by sharing her photos.

25. Thanks so much, my dear Glorfindel, for the info on the window and your kind remarks!

I've posted some info on the Chapelle, its location and so on.

Here's the link I used: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=Location+of+La+Sainte+Chapelle

32. Thank you, Glorfindel, for locating for me the source of the image.

Book of Revelation has always been very mysterious to me, so I don't go near it often.
However, I see the image captures all from that biblical passage most beautifully and fully.

22. So glad you enjoyed my photos, my dear No Vested Interest! Here's some info on the church:

The Sainte-Chapelle is a royal chapel in the Gothic style, within the medieval Palais de la Cité, the residence of the Kings of France until the 14th century, on the Île de la Cité in the River Seine in Paris, France. Construction began some time after 1238 and the chapel was consecrated on 26 April 1248. Wikipedia

Address: 8 Boulevard du Palais, 75001 Paris, France

33. Ah, thank you, Caifornia Peggy! Notre Dame Cathedral is also on Ile de la Cite', I believe.

I thought the Ile de la Cite' was smaller than it actually is, apparently.
I've been to Paris at least three times, but don't recall being in Ste. Chapelle, and now too old to go again, so I'll enjoy your beautiful photos in place of a visit...

30. Wow! How did I miss that when I was in Paris many years ago? I did have a fair collection of...

German and Italian architecture photos that were lost in a move a while back.

What always fascinates me is that they designed and built these things with the bare minimum of mathematics and measuring tools. Not even slide rules, much less Autocad and steam engines.

31. Well, my dear TreasonousBastard!

You'll just have to go back! It's justly famous and very popular.

I had a ball taking photos--hardly knew where to turn next.

Glad you enjoyed!

What incredible beauty! The gothic architecture is breathtaking, but oh my the stained glass! The illustrations and allegories of medieval life are superb. What a wonderful opportunity to photograph them!

35. Thank you so much, my dear mike_c!

It's a truly fabulous place for all the things you mentioned. I'd been at least once before but my film photos did not do it justice.

I had to go back, and I did.

I was exhausted, hot and sweaty, but I got there and I took full advantage of that. I may never return, but now I am much more satisfied!

Thank you for your kind and descriptive words.
