Saint Augustin Church
I never showed you this church and though I pass by it quite often. I actually never found the right angle. And last night, on the way back home at dusk, I saw this and decided it was the angle I was looking for. Saint-Augustin church was built between 1860-1871 by Victor Baltard (to whom we also owe the Baltard pavilion). It is almost 100 meter long and it's one of the first sizable buildings in Paris constructed around a metal frame.
