Photographer's Note

Rue de Bievre, 5ème arrondissement.

At Notre Dame,on the left / south bank of the River Seine turn your back on the cathedral and look towards the latin quarter and you will see some beautiful side lanes, like this one.

The street layout in this part of the city is medieval, hence the narrow width and shape of the lane.

I took this in early afternoon on a winter's day. This scan from a print does not show the luminescence of the original (the buildings on the left are a bit "flat", while there are wonderful reflecions of the sunlight on the original). I'm sure you get the idea of what this place is like, however!
