I couldn't believe my eyes when I emerged from the dimly lit interior of Notre Dame --- after enjoying the soprano singing vespers --- and walked into the soft rain showers of the evening. What a wonderful surprise to be greeted by this illuminated sky full of rich color! The shining pavement reflecting a glorious sunset shone against the dark buildings, and people with their umbrellas were in silhouette, framed by the illuminated lamposts. Paris between day and night! It was one of those moments when you just grab your camera and do your best to capture the magic! .

 

Lorsque je sortais - apres vepres - des tenebres de Notre Dame, je me suis trouvee devant ce tableau presque invraisemblable. Il avait plu, et le coucher du soleil rayonnait une lumiere rosatre et doree parmi les nuages qui dansaient. Quelle belle surprise inattendue!
