Two more

Here are two more views of the Saint-Sulpice church and its fountain. The first is a wide-angle close-in shot that seriously distorts the perspective. But so what?

The fountain has amazing lions.

The second is just one of those shots I take in passing without really thinking about it. I'm not sure what I was going for, maybe the water in the fountain, but I like two buildings in the background framed by the fountain and the church. There's no obvious subject, just another throw-away image, but I don't throw any images away (I don't post every photo I take, either).

Another of the lions.

We all take photos we don't like, but that doesn't mean they're bad. There's usually something about them that someone will like. And these days, with digital photography, taking too many photos doesn't cost any more than taking too few. And a lot of adjustments can be made with software to salvage images with minor problems.


  1. Excellent photos, both! The fountain is so majestic.

  2. I'm glad you shared both of these. Yes, the fountain does have amazing lions...

  3. I love both of these photos- the water and the lions are beautiful.

  4. Beautiful!
    "...taking too many photos doesn't cost any more than taking too few:" Except that I don't have the self-discipline to organize them, which means the "cost" to me is a lot of nostalgic and unfindable clutter on my hard-drive. Someday....

  5. Sob! No shoot of the Cafe' de la Mairie, on the Place, corner of Bonaparte and Saint Suplice, one of our favorite Paris cafe's. Roderick

  6. I think your photos marvelous
    As always it is fascinating to me to see things I do not see around these parts.


Tell me what you think!
