My thoughts go out to the French people and residents of Paris for the terrible destruction of their cathedral.
I've visited Notre Dame in Paris twice in my life. The first time was in 1990 and I took a picture of this chimera in black and white with my analog camera. This is not it. This is a photo from 2011 taken with a digital camera.
On a clear day you can see the Eifel Tower on the horizon. I was not so fortunate with the weather that day.
