Pews inside the church.
It's a jewel of a place. And because I was limiting my photos with the 50mm lens, I couldn't get wide shots inside. I had to make do with close ups. But I'm not complaining. I probably saw things close up that I may not have if I had the wide angle lens.
The widest shot I could get of the altar.
Some of the seating in the church, ornate pews called stalles, is adorned with intricate carvings. The stalles were built using funds donated by king François Ier. He enjoyed the reception he got while visiting Montréal and decided to give them some money which the monks used to have these carvings made.
This carving is called "The Presentation of Jesus at the Temple."
There's not much more to say about this place. I was inside for all of five minutes. Ken took a lot more photos inside than I did. Maybe he'll post a few on his blog when he gets done with the Paris pictures he's currently doing.
