Before the Fire: Gates

Gate on Northeast Side of Notre-Dame de Paris

Detail of a gate on the north side of the cathedral of Notre Dame, Paris, France

In honor of the devastating loss of so much of  the cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris, I am going to try to use photos from my last trips to Paris to respond to challenges this week. Like this one, some of them may be repeats.

Spiky Squares #25 – Light

Spiky Light

Light fixture, 1870-1871, Basilique Notre-Dame de Beaune, Beaune, France

Join Becky’s month of Spiky Squares: Spiky #25. Two rules. Must be Spiky somehow; there is a wide range of interpretations. The photo must be square. Thanks, Becky for another inventive challenge.

Sé Velha

Transept Dome, Coimbra, Portugal

Sé Velha, or the Old Cathedral, is a Romanesque church dating to the late 12th and early 13th centuries when Coimbra was still the capital of Portugal.  Instead of a dome,  a Romanesque lantern-tower surmounts the transept crossing. The tower windows are one of the main sources of natural light in the cathedral.  Sé Velha is the only Portuguese cathedral built during the Reconquista era which has survived relatively intact.
