St. Eustache Église

… to my new favorite church, the unassuming and overlooked St. Eustache, pretty in its high Gothic arches, delicate and light-filled, painted columns from another epoch offering a glimpse into the colorful personality of churches and cathedrals alike from a time when stone was but a backdrop for paint, not the final touch product, similar to the Ancient Greek temples who, unlike today’s stark white decor, used to don lifelike slatherings of dye.

Pretty little church, indeed …
