Prayers at Notre Dame

June 29, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

The question I find myself asking is "How risky am I feeling? ", as I wait in the line to enter the Notre Dame Cathedral, for this is one place they don't like you to use a tripod. I see a lot of workers there and decide I'll have to go hand held and hope for the best, because by the time I got set up I'd have heard the word "tripod" with a very French accent, preceded by the word "no", which seems to be a very popular phrase in Paris.

After I entered and walked around a little I came across an area with a few pews and one man praying with this brilliant beam of light shining on him. I almost didn't bother to take the shot because it was so dark in there I figured there's no way I could get it, but I stood firm, said my own prayers and fired off my bracket, to be pleasantly surprised when I returned home.

I really like this image, but I just find it interesting that people would come to such a "touristy" and noisy place to say they're prayers. I understand it is a church, and a famous and beautiful one at that, and that you're suppose to remain silent out of respect, but since when have tourists been known to be respectful ?
