I have decided to add a new feature here at My Melange.
Every week, I will select one of my images from my online gallery and share a little story behind it.
This week, the featured image is the Church of Saint-Paul.
And, for this week only, any purchases of this photo will be offered with FREE Shipping!
The church is located in the Marais neighborhood in Paris, which is a funky area on the Right Bank, that has a similar vibe to Greenwich Village in New York City.
We were lucky enough to be staying at the Hotel Sevigne in Paris on this particular visit. And though the hotel itself is located on the main street of Rue de Rivoli, we were rather high up and the windows were double-glazed, so it was really pretty quiet.
But imagine my surprise, when I opened our window, to find a tiny balcony, with the views of the street down below. And a small slice of the ornate church directly across from our room. I especially love the decorative iron balustrade, and the subtle shades of grey captured in the photo. The dome topped by the cross is like the icing on the cake.
The price of the room, regardless of the street noise was a bargain. But the view of the church and the photo were priceless.
