Église Saint-Louis en l'Île - les cierges

Église Saint-Louis en l'Île

Far from the bustling crowd on this well-traversed island in the Seine
is Église Saint-Louis en l'Île, full of art and soft light.

Construction started in 1642 at the direction of Louis XIV 
using the plans of François Le Vau who was also designing Versailles.

bon dimanche

A very atmospheric image. The glow of the candle light on the sculpture works really well.

Yes, candles burning in a Church always brings like peace to the soul. Like if you really wanted to be a better person than you usually are, with all the small problems of the day to day life aside.

At least, they don't charge you to get in!

I haven't visited this church before, so thanks for introducing it to me. I hope you'll play the Dreaming of France meme on Monday.

hi - i saw your question on flickr and am also new, but, may be able to help....once your picture is uploaded and you open up to just that picture, there should a "bar" to the above left that will allow you to share your photo. if you do not have this bar- go to the flickr home page and under the number 3 where it says: find you friends on flickr- click on learn more about contacts. from there- click on share your flickr photos and add your blog link. now when you open your pics there should a be share bar. hope this helps!!
