It has been a few years since I was in Paris, but memories are not gone. The photo bellow shows a remarkable trace of the past in the form of church of St. Etienne, which you might also know from Woody Allen’s movie “Midnight in Paris”.
Traces of the Past is a recurrent photo challenge that happens every month (one month in colour as part of Thursday’s Special and the following month in black and white as part of Black & White Sunday). You are free to choose whatever traces of the past you can find. It does not have to be a distant one, or rich in history; it can be something personal, or it can even have a human form. Just make sure to post for it before next Thursday and to link to this blog. Happy Thursday! ž

Notre Dame de Paris, one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture, needs no particular introduction, and since this is my third post dedicated to it, I’ve decided to talk about music instead. This time I would like you to join me for a walk along Seine while listening to gothic, ethereal music by French neoclassical dark-wave group known as Dark Sanctuary. Click on the play button to hear Prelude from their album “De lumière et d’obscurité” (Of Light and Darkness).
Though disbanded in 2009, their legacy as one of the greatest bands in this musical style lives on.
**About Thursday’s Special: It is a ‘non-challenge’ challenge that appeals to bloggers eager to wake up their creativity and show their own ideas and interpretation of the world. I invite everybody interested to join in. There are no themes, titles and techniques set for your expression, there are no limits and restrictions (no red tape whatsoever). The only thing required is to post a photo post on Thursdays entitled “Thursday’s Special: (your theme/title)” (as explained in my Thursday’s Special introductory post), to provide a link to my Thursday’s Special post, and to leave a link to your post in the comments section of my post. If you like Thursday’s Special widget, feel free to grab it and post it on your blog.
Please check out entries to this week’s Thursday’s Special:

Though most of you might have expected to see another shot or edit of Eiffel Tower, I have decided to post a statue of my favourite French philosopher Michel de Montaigne. This statue is situated in front of the entrance to French Sorbonne in Paris.
“On the highest throne in the world, we still sit only on our own bottom.”
