Saint Sulpice

I took this photo back in 2004 with one of Ken's digital cameras, a Kodak DC4800 pocket model. It's taken inside the church of Saint Sulpice in Paris, very near to where I lived as a student in 1981. I've messed with the image a little in an attempt to reduce the noise that often shows up in low-light photos. The camera was totally automatic, or at least I was using it in automatic mode.

One of my first forays into digital photography, February 2004.

We're back in the blah weather cycle. A very fine rain, which the French call bruine, fell all day Saturday. It was driven by gusty winds and was not very pleasant to be out walking in. Even Callie doesn't like the rain driven into her eyes, but she's a trooper. At least we had the wind at our backs on the way back home. And a fire in the wood stove most of the day.


  1. It was, most certainly, the weather for sitting in front of a blazing log fire....
    and today hasn't exactly started out nice either!!

  2. Nice to have a fire in the stove :)
    I've wondered before about Callie and her walks on these kinds of days. Do you shorten the walk, and is she happy about that?

  3. tim, true dat.

    judy, yes! If it's really nasty out, yes, we shorten the walk. She doesn't complain. Sometimes she lets us know that she's ready to turn around and go home. That's funny when it happens.

    mitch, aw, shucks.

  4. I am still amazed to see 'Catholic' things in France; for I get the impression France isn't that catholic anymore. yes? no?


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
