Duotone Notre Dame||Canon EOS 40D/12-24mm | 1/100 | f/16 | ISO 100 | Handheld
Just a quick post as I've had some more time to go over pictures from Paris this weekend. I like the way this one turned out with the reddish tint.

Candelabras and Arches || Canon EOS 40D/EF28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM | 2.5" | f/11 | ISO 100 | Tripod
OK, so I felt a little rebellious after being told I could use my tripod. After we made the rounds of the cathedral, we sat down and I got my tripod out again. I figured I'd only be a security risk if I was standing with my tripod (it is awfully easy to pick it up and use it as a bludgeoning instrument). Apparently they thought so too.

Notre Dame Stained Glass || Canon EOS 40D/EF28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM | 1/3 | f/11 | ISO 100 | Tripod
This is the image I managed to snap on my tripod before I was informed that tripods were a security hazard. It did prove very difficult to shoot, obviously impossible to capture the bright window with the cathedral walls. Either you get the glass and black everywhere else, or you get the cathedral walls and the glass is blown out.

I thought this one was hilarious and I would love to know the story behind it, but this particular king deserved a photo.

Kings at Notre Dame || Canon EOS 40D/EF28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM | 1/200 | f/8 | ISO 100 | Handheld
Ah Paris. Everywhere you looked there was something fascinating and Notre Dame was no exception. We spent a fair amount of time here and it was here that I was first introduced to the "No Tripod" rule. Inside the cathedral I thought the stained glass was beautiful, and I thought it would be an interesting challenge to photograph. Since I didn't want to get in the way of anyone, I went off to a less traveled corner and pulled out my tripod (taking care to not fully extend the legs so that I wasn't in anyone's way ). I managed to get a couple of shots before I was told to put it away by. Apparently tripods aren't allowed because of security reasons. Oh well. Anyway, this was outside (and no, I didn't use a tripod, although I'm sure I could have since it was outside). ๐Ÿ™‚
