Framed by the entrance to Les Halles

Great perspective and framing! It really emphasizes the grandeur of the building.

I wonder what old St Eustache is thinking about all the commotion that is underway a few feet away, where the old "Forum Des Halles" used to stand... I am guessing old St Eustache is as impatient as we all are to discover "Les Nouvelles Halles." -- Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Ah! Genie I have walked up those steps and sat on a bench at the top listening to two musicians playing Mozart right outside that beautiful old church! Your lovely photo brings back memories.

I have passed by Saint-Eustache many times, but I´ve never seen it from this angle.

Oui, Saint-Eustache floats like a vast ocean liner above the sea of grass on the park above Les Halles.

Just beautiful! I love this angle. And that architecture is amazing!

It is a great angle you captured Genie. Have you ever heard the massive organ played on Sundays inside Saint Eustache? Quite the awesome booming experience. But I miss Les Halles Anciennes.
