Weekend Reflections: Sainte Bernadette


1930s Sainte-Bernadette church reflected in a modern glass building in Jussieu neighbourhood for James' Weekend Reflections. A non-reflected view for better detail left.

L'église Sainte-Bernadette des années 1930 se situe dans le quartier de Jussieu et se reflète ici dans un immeuble moderne pour les Reflets du Weekend de James. A gauche, une vue non reflétée pour mieux voir les détails.

Great image, a reflection as clear as the original and a beautiful photo on the side.

Wow, great reflection. I especially like how the glass gives the image that wavy look. In the middle right square of the picture, is that a lamp post (almost looks like a coat rack!)? What happened to the rest of it?

Jacob said...

Excellent, Ciel. In both cases. The reflection is quite stunning and it is a beautiful building.

Oh, I wanted to say that lawyers are like doctors and other professionals: there are good ones and bad ones; and some I like and some I don't much care for.

There's a lawyer in Versailles, who is also a very good photographer, and I like her a lot!

:-))

Heavenly photos of that church! The reflection snap is particularly well done! Bravo!
Bon weekend!

James said...

Great shots Ciel! The coat rack that is blended with the reflection looks cool. I like how you took the bottom shot.

Tres bonne photo de l'eglise en reflections.
J'en ai encore 2 a suivre et celle d'aujourd'hui sera plus comme la tienne avec 1 seul batiment en reflection.

Enlarging this was wonderful for the detail you captured in the reflection. I love the old being reflected in the new.
A terrific reflection!

That is a beautiful church and a great reflection.

Catherine said...

Un très, très beau reflet.....
Avec tout ce bleu, ça donne un splendide effet. Pour une fois remercions cet immeuble moderne d'avoir poussé là.

Oh wow, I hadn't even noticed the coat rack. :-( I can't believe it! ;-)

Rob said...

Classique, mais ca marche a chaque coup. Tres bien vu! Bon weekend!

Great reflection. The wavy lines give it so much character. And I like how the blue sky blends so well with the window frames.

RuneE said...

Reflecting large architectural structures piecemeal in windows like this can give quite surreal and exciting results. That is part of the fun in doing this.

I really like that first shot. Clever idea. Through a glass--not so darkly. MB

Michael said...

The tower is an interesting image to begin with and looks even more so reflected. Good pic.

Stine in Ontario said...

I really like the way the way you've fit the reflection so well into the glass. Yes, very clear.

PERBS said...

The reflection is so good I thought it was looking out the window at the building. . . boy! Was I wrong!

Your reflection studies are consistently beautiful and thoughtful, CQ. Thank you.

Pacey said...

Oh this is a magnificent reflection...love the blue glass too.

Jan said...

Great reflection and thanks for including the other view.

One more example of a working architecture mix.
Very nice!

Dimple said...

Window reflections are really neat, I like yours a lot!
Thanks for the visit!

awarewriter said...

Both shots are great. I like the angle you chose for the second. Handsome church indeed.

Clueless in Boston said...

Wonderful shot. I really like the reflection shot.

Bim said...

Great reflection - I like the slight wobbliness due to the uneven glass.

Gallow said...

I like the reflection of the church. What a great choice. Well captured.

Malyss said...

Voila un reflet qui entre dans la categorie des contrastes moderne/ancien, sacré/profane, entier/destructuré..L'eglise même "nature" offre une architecture inhabituelle
