Wordless Wednesday #8


Pardon with my playfulness on the photo. I’m practicing how to do collage. Anyway, I’m sure you have heard about this Basilica of the Sacré Cœur in Montmartre as one of the landmarks in Paris.

Happy WW to all!

This Gargoyle with frozen water on his mouth is a part of the church; where the water from the gutter normally flows out from its mouth, but froze came.

I absolutely love your wordless Wednesday's. You're very talented! There's something about your blog that's very peaceful and enticing. Maybe it's the international flair that you give it. It's definitely well written!

Kate you should not be envious with me.answer to your question. I love & hate the place more on the weather actually. that makes me hate the place.
Indrani,Kalinyaccents & Ellen B Yes, i'm trying to revive some of my creativity.If there is still to salvage.
Gattina I know we did a marathon on the stair too. i was breathless when i reach the top but it worth it.
