The other Lady of Paris

A spooky, spectral vision of Notre Dame. Not quite abstract, not quite real, floating somewhere between the two, a frown and a fickle smile. Which is how I see her. She deserves that, at least, I think. After all she's been through. The linch pin of Paris. Let her lie in peace for a while...

Thanks Ham and Alaska.

Some people don't take shots of the classic monuments because they say it's been done so many times before. But that's silly, because there is always something new you can do with them, even if this particular shot isn't particularly innovative. It's still possible just to be awestruck by the very fact that such an incredible structure actually exists with its pinacles and gargoyles and flying buttresses, never mind all the legends and myths that have been built around it. Notre Dame de Paris, indeed...

On the same theme, what is your impression of my "Ground Zero" photo in "My Other Stuff"?

Your "Ground Zero" shot is excellent. A lot more abstract than my Notre Dame pic, and I think actually a stronger photo, and certainly much more original and striking... keep looking for the original approach, otherwise how will we be able to distinguish ourselves from the crowd..?!
