Notre Dame d'Espérance


There not only old churches in Paris, some new ones too. Some VERY new ones even... Like this one inaugurated in 1997, located at rue de la Roquette in the Bastille aerea in front of which I passed several times without finding the righ angle to shoot! This time I went for the "closer to God" angle ;-) Thank you for your best wishes yesterday; I'm still not recovered (this photo is not fresh of the day!), but I hope to be better tomorrow.

  1. I'm so sorry you're not feeling chipper yet, Eric! Food poisoning really knocks you around. Take care and I hope another good night's sleep does the trick. Beautiful photo ~ it reminds me of some of Alexa's New York shots.

  2. I like the "closer to God" angle -- it works well for this photo. Interesting church.
    Take very good care....

  3. Hmmm. This "closer to God" post sounds ominous. Tomorrow's had better not be in a tunnel.

    In any case, do take care of yourself.

  4. I clicked on the link to Google maps (very handy - thanks) and having had a look, I think your shot shows this church at its best.

    1. LOL ! Well yeah, let's say it's not the most fascinating church in Paris...

  5. Great shot! Admittedly it doesn't hold a candle to Notre Dame, but what church does? For its era, it is a great piece of architecture.

    Hope you are feeling better now. Food poisoning is the worst.
