The Good Friday plans of many Parisians and tourists alike

were shattered on Monday when…

Notre Dame de Paris burned.

Approximately 30,000 people visit

Notre Dame de Paris everyday.

And likely thousands more visit

over the Easter period.

It is unlikely that any, of the many Easter services

and celebrations will be conducted

anywhere near Notre Dame, this year.

I think these are some of the statues of

the Twelve Apostles, plus four Evangelists,

which surrounded the Spire.

These had all been removed only

a day or two prior to he fire.

Today, Good Friday appears to bring some good news

as far as items saved are concerned.

Let us all be thankful for small mercies.

We visited

Notre Dame Cathedral

in September,

2016

Built 800 years ago.

Took 200 Years to build.


And a mere six hours to burn…

Observation Deck on the 148th floor (555 m or 1,821 ft).

This was the highest observation deck in the world

FOWChallenge-Optional

~~~~~““

optional

available to be chosen but not obligatory.

 

During our visit to Europe in 2016

there optional extras nearly every day

…such as this Gondola ride in Venice, and…

…a night at the Moulin Rouge in Paris.

After a twenty-four hour plane trip to London

we just could not pass up

on any of these ‘optionals’

I did have thoughts of…

…using an assortment of images…

…from our visit to Europe.

Then I found these, most of which…

I have never previously posted.

 

 

Our last night in Paris proved enjoyable

from a photography sense and

a great way to end our visit.

I’m being a rebel this week and not walking a bank…

but photographing one.

Images are not so good..my apologies…but you get the idea.

Tourists or locals?

whichever, it was a great way to spend our last evening in…

 

Paris.
