Tour Eiffel. That is all I could think on the flight to Paris. But after reaching here, I have been to Notre Dame many times more than the Tour Eiffel. I still have not figured out why I like this place. I loved the Victor Hugo classic "The Hunchback of Notre Dame". But that shouldn't translate to me visiting this place over and over. Is this place easily accessible from my place? I don't think so. I take two trains to get here!
On one bank is the famous book store named "Shakespeare & Co". I love books. But after the first visit, I had my fill. Shakespeare & Co is a vintage shop. I'm more of Barnes & Noble or Borders guy. I love book stores. But it should have plenty of space and a lot of air. Forget the plush chairs. I will sit on the carpeted floors. In summary, this book store is also not what attracts to me to this area!
Anyways, I decide to shoot Notre Dame from the canal sidewalks. There are many tourist boats that pass by this area every 10 minutes. An interval of 10 minutes is good enough to get the desired picture. You can see the final result below.
