850 years young

          Staying in Paris in October 2013, we arrived at the 850th birthday celebrations of Notre Damme, Hubby bought a commemorative coin, and of course I captured the moment with the camera.

2013-10. 850 years.

          The crowds at the usually busy attraction increased with the celebrations at the front of the cathedral, but apart from the “Silver silence” to be found inside, it was still surprisingly easy to find a quiet spot outside too.

2013-10. Garden path.

          A short garden path takes you past the side of the building, following the river, towards a little known garden at the rear.  Here townsfolk and tourists alike were enjoying the tranquility.  Quite a contrast to the bustling business in the square at the front.

          The stillness of the riverside path had even tempted one of the many artists in Paris to set up his easel and apply his paints.

           More from before: “Paris” … and not just in the springtime.
