paris : notre dame's magnificent interior

3.14.2013




































lucky for us, notre dame was just a short walk from our paris apartment--
which meant we walked by this incredible cathedral often.
since we were on "mosey-tourist" mode we were repeatedly detered
from entering by the long, long line to enter...

but one afternoon we decided to risk the wait.
to our surprise, the line moved rather quickly, and we
were soon under her vaulted ceilings.

twelve years ago i sat in my high school art history class
dreaming of the day i would see these monumental vaults
and the flying buttresses outside. it lived up to all the hype.

LOVE these photos of Notre Dame. You captured it beautifully! When I was there I didn't take a single photo of the inside, kicking myself now. So I was so happy to look at these photos of yours. Such a beautiful place!

Notre Dame is spectacular even with the crowds inside and out, don't you think? I sat for what felt like hours just staring at the rosette and domes. Your photos are so atmospheric and capture the mood and sanctity of the cathedral perfectly. Remarkable!
