Eglise Ste-Eustache, Paris

Here’s one of my favorite shots from a visit to Paris in 2004.  Okay…choosing a Parisian favorite is patently ridiculous.  But this one qualifies.  It was truly a happy coincidence of stained glass and afternoon sun.

Église Saint-Eustache is a monster of a church.  It’s a gothic behemoth in the 1st arrondissement of Paris and marks the entrance to Les Halles, the ancient market that defines the heart of the city.

Outside the church is a jarringly modern and justifiably famous sculpture, “L’Écoute” (Listen) by Henri de Miller.  No.  Not that Henry Miller…
