Église Protestante Luthérienne Saint-Jean

Protestant Lutheran Church Saint-Jean

Sitting on rue de Grenelle with a lovely garden, 
a brisk walker might even pass it by.

In the spring the emerging green leaves and subtle shadows
bring life to a redwood, a birch, a sycamore, and a lime.
It looks like a storybook scene.

bon dimanche

What beautiful church.

"Paris and Beyond" has been included in our A Sunday Drive for this week. Be assured that we hope this helps to point even more new visitors in your direction.

Black and White making it a little mysterious !

Revrunner said...

Such an inviting entrance!

Lisa Graham Art said...

Beautiful scene and I love how you describe it in color yet the photo is black and white. So creative.

Birdman said...

You've captured simple elegance in this one.

Jeanie said...

How enchanting. You're right -- it does look like a fairy tale and the b/w is the perfect treatment.

Harriet said...

I love the effect of looking at the steeple through the delicate branches. It appears that the leaves are just beginning to form, but I can't be sure. Love this one in b&w.

William Kendall said...

It is pretty, but also understated, as you'd expect out of a Lutheran church.

Harriet, the trees are just beginning to bloom with the brightest chartreuse shades seen in nature. Merci beaucoup.

Lisa, I appreciate your comment, an artists view.

Jerry, thank you kindly for the link.

Revrunner, I have not ever been inside but put it on my list as I would love to see the interior architecture, the "bones" of this church.

To all, may you have a productive, good week ahead!

Love the way my eye is led right up that path to the church. Great shot!

Jack said...

You are right. This little church would be an easy one to overlook in the visual overload of Paris.
