Through My Lens: Église Saint-Eustache

This being the Season of Lent, I think it’s appropriate that I troll through my collection of photos of European churches. For today, the First Sunday of Lent, I’m posting a photo of Saint-Eustache in Paris.

My sister and I discovered this church almost by accident in December 2010 when we set out for shopping and lunch in the 1er arrondissement. We were walking along Rue Montorgueil, somehow ended up on a tiny side street, which turned into an alley of sorts, saw a door, opened it, and suddenly were inside this immense church. Only upon leaving through another exit did we realize how massive it is. This photo was taken from Forum des Halles.

    Beautiful photo. It was very interesting to read that You have a collection of European churches. I am very glad from it.

    I started to photograph churches in 2004 when I bought my first digital camera. Now I have photos from 380 churches in Finland and mainly from those which are situated on countryside on small villages.

    Our churches differ very much from those seen in Middle and South Europe.

    Here are few, that You can see some of them:

    Stone churches.

    Wooden churches.

    Personally I prefer old wooden churches.

    I wait with eager to see more of Your collection.

    Happy Monday!

        Churches in Finland different from those seen in France, Italy, Germany etc. I know, because I have been travelling a lot of, which You can see in my About me page.

        How does it sound “Rock church”, White cathedral of Helsinki or many medieval churches? Those You can find among my “Stone churches”.

        Among “Wooden churches”, how does it sound World’s Biggest wooden church, 100 angel’s church or a private wooden church made by female wooden artist? The private church’s doors are unique in the whole world. Each made from one wooden piece. You have to find out it Yourself.

        Generally speaking people do not have any idea in the world how different churches can be here.

        Have a lovely day!
