Église Saint-Merri with its dome of light...
Cette église semble austère par son architecture, mais probablement harmonieuse dans ses lignes et ses motifs.Bon dimanche, Genie!
Beautiful and serene. Bon dimanche! x
Beautiful curves.I like the way the torch in the relief connects with the ceiling light.All best wishes for your trip to Paris Genie.......bon voyage et bonne chance! xx
And down ... in fact, take a step back, lean against a shop front ... and just survey for a while ... all points of the compass ... it saddens me to see folk shooting as they walk ... looking yet not seeing ...
Hi genie,, gorgeous pic.. Good reminder to look up. Carla
This light is simply wonderful! It gives the place its special and serene mood..
Such a terrific way to start the day.
I love this church. My first time there in January and I took so many photos, but missed the dome! ArghhhhhBon dimanche. Are you all packed?V
Yes, always, always look up. Lovely church. I love its dome of light.
Richard -- Il y a beaucoup d'autres détails dans cette église. J'ai posté déja une autre photo.Sara Louise -- Merci, mon amie et bon dimanche à vous (Fifty aussi!)Suzi -- Merci!Ruby -- I am glad that you noticed... I imagine that the designer created it for that effect. Merci!Julie -- You are absolutely correct... You need all of your senses to capture the feel of a place... Having a "spotter" with you helps as well. See you on Thursday!Carla -- Merci, oh great one (hehe) but I am serious. Thanks for leaving me a comment.Malyss -- I almost missed this section of the church as it is not as "flashy" or elaborate as its other areas.Jojo -- Merci, mon amie!Virginia -- You can go again as there is no limit... I feel the same way when I think about some things that I missed on a trip... bon dimanche à toi aussi, and non, I am not packed -- eeeek!Halcyon -- Merci and thank you for your lovely Mobile, AL photo for "bridge day"
Loree -- You seem to always capture "the whole" of a scene in your photos as well!Chieftess -- Merci!
Très beau cliché! J'adore l'atmosphère de paix qui règne dans les églises;o)***Bises et belle semaine, Genie****
Very nice picture with the dome and the engravings on the wall...God bless you!Cezar
Nice shot. Bon dimanche, madame!
Once again you have given us a gorgeous shot. You cannot help but look up in a beautiful place like this. The light from the skylighted dome is divine. Awesome work.

God bless you and Léia (and Luna) as well.Starman -- Merci, my kind friend.Genie, my friend with the same name -- Merci, and may you have skylighted shots this week!Karena -- Merci, I am glad that you like this oneEG -- Yes, yes, but certainly you MUST!Marie -- Must pack soon! au demain, mon amie!
You and Julie are right—look up AND down, and all around—advice you must already follow, since you don't seem to miss anything! When you get to Paris, have some caramel au beurre salé macarons pour moi, mon amie!
What a gorgeous shot! The carvings of those angels is just divine.
Wow that would really take ones breath away.
Saint-Merri is such a beautiful worship space, and such a welcome contrast to its neighbor, centre Pompidou. the building «Louis» thinks is a textbook example of a Lego structure on bad steroids...
Painters get so much glory, but this sculptor had such imagination and skill, to have the figures of the angels and cherubs extending out into our space - with that lovely domed window above which would give it such drama!
