I left Paris with a cold, and after returning home and getting back into the work and home routine, while busily sniffing, coughing, sneezing and trying to rid myself of my cosmopolitan French germs, I realize there are many things from my trip I still want to share.
A favorite place we visited was Sainte-Chapelle. Any one who knows me knows that I love stained glass, and this gothic chapel built 8 centuries ago has the most amazing stained glass windows that I have ever seen. Definitely a challenge to photograph, and I'm not sure that any one photograph can capture the ambiance and scale of this fantastic space. It was almost like stepping into a kaleidescope! More than 6000 sq feet of stained glass.... I wonder how many individual pieces make up these windows!!!
