Notre Dame by kuschelirmel Notre Dame by kuschelirmel
~ Notre Dame, Paris, April 2012 ~

The inside of this church is massive - so huge I've never seen anything like it. The picture doesn't really do it justice, as you get no sense of scale, so suffice it to say that each of the archs is twice or even thrice as high as a man...

I wish I had a good camera to try and capture this amaing place. I got such bad pictures but this is amaing! Its like a flash back. Either you have an amaing camera or the lighting was realy good that day! XD

thank you so much!

I have a Nikon D90 (with the 18 - 105 mm lense), so it's a DSLR, but still not a professional one. I was lucky they had those lights up everywhere and because it was raining outside there were not too many people there that could bump into me while I was trying to hold the camera steady for the longer shutter time (there are no tripods allowed inside). In cases like this I always make multiple photos in rapid succession in the hopes that one in the series is sharp. It's certainly not something you can do with a simple point-and-shoot, simply because their sensors are usually not that sensitive and the lenses are cheaper, too. But with a tripod and a bit of patience I think you could do it with a cheaper camera, too (you'd just have to creatively use the picture settings available) - maybe the pictures wouldn't be just as crisp, but at least they wouldn't be blurry.

Youre welcome.
Yeah I had a very cheap camera-, between the dim lighting, all the people and my camera, all my pictures came out blurry. =/

Actually, it's not. The fancy lighting comes from the actual light setup within the church :aww:

I had a brief stay in London, but that's it. While I was in France I visited Paris, Giverny and the Loire Valley. I'm looking forward to spending a semester abroad in college :) Where else have you traveled?

I live in Frankfurt, Germany, so Europe is pretty much a given ;) My parents used to go to Italy on holiday each year, so I've been there (mostly Tuscany, area of Florence) often. Then I used to live in Karlsruhe (150 km south of Frankfurt) when I was at university which is right next to the French border, so I've been in that area a lot, too (Strasbourg, Freiburg on the German side). Been to Switzerland, often driving through to get across the alps, but sometimes for holidays in the mountains, too (area around St. Moritz). I was in England for a language course for three weeks when I was 13, also in London then, but I don't remember all that much of it ^^; My boyfriend has relatives in Ontario, Canada, so we went for a visit a few years back - got to go to New York then, too and Niagara Falls, Toronto and Montreal. And now the trip to Paris, also with my boyfriend :) For work, I was in Tallinn (Estonia) for two days and I was stunned by how beautiful the city was. And they sent me to Krakow (Poland) recently for 2 weeks and that too was beautiful :aww:

I guess I was very lucky so far, but I still hope to see more of the world, also outside Europe :aww:

I'm so jealous of Europeans :XD: I've been to a lot of places in America, but mostly on family vacation. Its just too big and too expensive to travel so far.

More than anything I want to have an extended stay in Europe and visit all those wonderful places. I just love the old architecture and the history. Not to mention I find foreign languages to be fascinating. Even if I can't understand whats being said, I love listening to it. I'd like to go to Russia as well. My uncle travels a lot for his work and he stayed in St. Petersburg. Japan is another place on my list lol
