About an hour from Paris is the pretty gothic town Chartres, with its ancient cathedral.


I took the train out and hoofed it around town one day last fall (hence the green). It was lovely, if not a little uninspired. There's not a whole lot going on aside from the church, but the tourist office gives you a nice map to explore the rest of the town on foot.

Many of the stained glass windows are original from the 13th century, and a gorgeous shade of blue.

Well, that's uplifting.


The day was flat and overcast, so I put some filters to use to make things a bit more interesting and contrasty.

How very goth.
