Urban landscapes: before the fire

NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL, PARIS

During a 2017 day trip from our cruise ship, my wife and I had such a short time to see this cathedral that I forgot I even made a photo of it until wandering through the archives and making this discovery.
Lineups to get in the cathedral were so ridiculously long that we didn’t even try. So, attempting to conjure up an interesting composition, I twisted the camera and included a lightpost for a secondary point of visual interest.
Other than the blue sky, there was very little colour in this scene, so I made a black-and-white version to increase the drama.

One thought on “Urban landscapes: before the fire

  1. I enjoyed this incredible take on ND, Frank. The B/W really brought out the many lines and details, and the lamp post gave it an anchor. The clouds lent an ethereal element that gilded the lily. Wonderful photo.
