Île de la Cité is a natural island located in the Seine River and is the center of metropolitan Paris.

Notre-Dame de Paris

I have this fantasy that I photographed the cathedral early in the morning when the light is magical and the tourists are absent. It didn’t happen. I just will not get up that early. Also, I did not bring my tripod to Paris. So these images show you what you will see if you arrive at the cathedral in the mid-morning on a sunny day.
