Continuing two recent traits, namely Paris and B&W.
The area around Les Halles, once a marvellous place to people watch and buy a wide variety of goods at the world-famous market, is now (and has long been) a chaotic area of building works and disruption.
In the middle of all this chaos stands sanctuary in the form of the peace and tranquility of L'église Saint-Eustache. When mrs. salty and I visited, we were two of only four visitors enjoying this proud old church. Built between 1532 - 1630, it is a magnificent example of the Gothic style.
My attention was captured by a lone person, reading a newspaper in solitude, and for me, giving scale to the image. The light striking high up on the columns was a contrast I couldn't resist.
Many thanks for all recent interest and comments.
becoming - no, strike that, I mean, am already very, very fed up of rain and even more rain every single weekend.
