Église Saint-Augustin
(seen last Sunday here)


This photo was taken from the rooftop terrace of Printemps.  In addition to the thousands of rooftops and chimneys, the majestic Saint-Augustin stands high above most every other building.  The church is 100 meters long and the dome height is 80 meters (262 feet).  

This Byzantine structure, completed in 1871, was one of the first large buildings in Paris built around a metal frame.  It pleases me greatly that the dome is rouge.


bon dimanche
