Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

On our way to see the renown cathedral of Reims, I was attracted by the imposing size of this huge, Neoclassical building but then was delighted by the presence of the three figures! What could be better, a gorgeous building animated by the figures; and I have to admit, the three wise monkeys came to mind - see no evil, hear no evil speak no evil!

This is the Palais de Justice or the courthouse of Reims. It was built in 1839 in a Neoclassical style, complete with a pediment supported by Doric columns at its entrance on rue Carnot. (The site had previously been occupied by an ancient hospital, known as Hôtel Dieu Notre Dame). It is not surprising that we came upon this building for the rear façade of the Palais de Justice faces the Notre Dame Cathedral.

You may have noticed a figure just entering the scene on the left. I had not noticed him as I took the shot and would normally have deleted him, however, I took a second shot here and it was only as I studied my photographs later that I saw the link.

I will post the second shot as a workshop.

Enjoy your day, Bev :-)
