Featured Photo: Inside the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Boulogne

Inside the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Boulogne

The Basilica of Notre-Dame de Boulogne is situated in within the old town walls of Boulogne-sur-Mer.  The dome of the basilica dominates the skyline in all directions and can be seen peeking over the old town walls from miles away.  Despite having spent the better part of three hours photographing the dome from the streets of Boulogne, nothing prepared me for its interior beauty.  It was absolutely breathtaking and perhaps the most perfect structure I have ever had the pleasure to photograph.


I got to see my blog on someone else's computer on Friday and was quite surprised! It looked completely different to what I usually see and everything just looked too big for the screen. Now I know from Google Analytics that most people use the same resolution as me or even higher but I was wondering, do any of you find that the images are too big now?

  2. I like the new layout too. I prefer the larger sized pictures, otherwise what's the point. I like to see pictures with details that I don't have to squint to see.

  4. No, I don't find the blog looks "wrong" in any way.

    I always like looking up into domes. It reminds me somehow of when I had a kaleidoscope as a child. I think Boulogne is generally rather an under rated place - I haven't been there for a few years but I did enjoy it.

  9. I love pictures of domes, but they are not always easy to take. Some you have to get on the floor. I like the one you took with all those statues around it. I don't know what resolution you are using, but I like your large pictures. On my blog, I asked it to show large pictures, but I think it is still too small.

  11. @ Mo: Thanks for letting me know!

    @ Clueless in Boston: I agree with you - I prefer bigger photos too and I think less people are concerned with bandwidth than they were say 5-10 years ago.

    @ Ola: Yes! I was very surprised, I must say but I'm glad they look okay to you.

    @ Betty: thank you! I loved the dome!

    @ Ivanhoe: that is good to hear, glad they look okay.

    @ Spiderdama: I hope Spiderdan enjoyed SA!

    @ Giselle: thank you! I'm glad to hear they look okay.

    @ AVCr8teur: I did not notice the statues at first and only did so when I took a step back. They are lovely!

    @ Life Ramblings: Thank you - the dome was more difficult to photograph than I originally expected! Glad the layout looks good to you.
