Photographer's Note

This is an older photo from a trip to Montreal in 2002. The photo was taken inside the Notre Dame Basilica in the old city of Montreal. Not having a tripod I balanced the camera on the end of one of the pews to try to stabilize the image.
Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal (English: Notre-Dame Basilica) is a basilica in the historic district of Montreal, in Quebec, Canada. Specifically, it is located at 116, Notre Dame Street West, facing Place d'Armes, at the corner of Saint Sulpice Street in Old Montreal (Place-d'Armes metro station).

The church's architecture is among the most dramatic in the world; its interior is grand and colourful, its ceiling is coloured deep blue and decorated with golden stars, and the rest of the sanctuary is a polychrome of blues, azures, reds, purples, silver, and gold. It is filled with hundreds of intricate wooden carvings and several religious statues. Unusual for a church, the stained glass windows along the walls of the sanctuary do not depict biblical scenes, but rather scenes from the religious history of Montreal. It also has a Canadian-built Casavant Frères pipe organ, which comprises four keyboards, 97 stops, almost 7000 individual pipes and a pedal board. (Wikipedia.
I will show a photo of the pipe organ in WS.
