|Construction on this gorgeous Gothic church was|
begun in 1532 and completed 105 years later.
The church has served the area of Les Halles for
almost 400 years. Saint-Eustache is a wonderful place
to attend an organ concert; their organ boasts
8,000 pipes (!) and is reputed to be the largest in France
(and it has a beautiful sound).

|A few weeks ago Mother Nature gave us a |
beautiful, warm, sunny weekend—then
she hit us with more cold and snow.
(You can't see it in the fog, but
at the end of this block is the U.N.)

|Snow! Ice! Cold! More snow!|
I've really needed a flower fix lately—I'm talking
about real flowers here, growing-in-the-ground flowers.
Fortunately, the indoor habitats at the
Brooklyn Botanic Garden have just what I'm craving.

|It's actually not that easy to take a picture|
of your own eye, especially with a
macro lens (no depth of field whatsoever).
I can't quite decide if the photo is creepy or cool
(but I'm currently leaning toward cool).
What do you think?

|Looks like this lady was at Galeries Lafayette last |
November for the same reason I was—to
take pictures of their newly installed Christmas
décor. But I was also fascinated by her 'do
and wanted to ask all about it (but didn't, oh well).

|That's the name of this fiberglass|
sculpture by Ana Tsarev; it's part of her
Love and Peace Global Campaign. If
you're in NYC, you can see it (and take a picture
to become part of the "campaign") at the corner of
2nd Ave. and 47th St. (about a block from
U.N. headquarters) until April 27.

|This is the color I always think of as French blue;|
appropriate here—this little café/restaurant
is on rue d'Ormesson, in the heart of the Marais.
It was too chilly to be part of this pretty
al fresco vignette, but I notice they were offering
up chocolat chaud (and the all-important WiFi).
