A few shots of the front yard of St. Sulpice at dusk, which is hands-down the best time of day to visit.
For all the gawking I do at church facades I should invent some kind of word for it, like instead of people-watching maybe call it “steeple-watching”. Or maybe “conducting field rechurch“? Yikes — I think I’m headed down a dangerous path straight into Pun-ville here…and I think I already dipped pretty far into that well for this post’s title.
At any rate, a 17th-century building with a 19th-century fountain and 21st-century lighting is some kind of trifecta. I don’t remember exactly what my childhood vision of Europe was back in the day, but it must’ve been something pretty close to this.
Good to see you are still alive and kicking. I came across some youtube video of you. Quite excellent, sir. Cheers.
Thanks a lot Jesse, wow it’s been a long time, eh? Hope you’re doing well.
