A detail of the East facade of this magnificent cathedral showing the flying buttresses and apse. Notre Dame is one of my favorite places of Paris. When I lived there years ago I used to go inside regularly and sit down to enjoy the cool darkness and the deeply nourishing atmosphere and quiet. Here is some information about Notre Dame: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Notre_Dame_de_Paris . Et en francais: fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cath%C3%A9drale_Notre-Dame_de_Paris

A quiet moment on a rainy winter evening, by this usually very busy intersection of the Latin Quarter. Some history of this special corner location in my comments below. Here is their website: www.le-buci.com/index.htm

(Click on the photo to better see the details.) A glimpse of Paris .... an afternoon at the Louvre. Imagine that this entire area was filled for centuries with medieval houses until the urban renewal project of Haussman, under Louis Napoleon, had them demolished to create an open space. Wonderful history and excellent images that show how this monumental building developed over the centuries, from a fortress to a palace to a museum: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louvre_Palace

A glimpse of the historic bridge with its wonderful lampposts, and the Quai des Grands Augustins in the distance. It's been years since I traveled to Paris, but that city is calling me again lately. I'm currently reading "Seven Ages of Paris" by Alistair Horne. Recommend it highly to anyone who loves history, and loves Paris. (Vintage Books, 2004)

Wonderful history of the Pont Neuf here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pont_Neuf

And now for a completely different mood: in autumn the ocean off the rugged Mendocino Coast is calm, almost like a lake, and one can see kelp bulbs emerge above the water, indicating the presence of giant kelp forests floating below. Sea otters can float on these thick beds, bobbing up and down with the gentle wave action. The coming evening's deep blue sky is reflecting in the calm ripples. (Another image from my archives.)
