17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Once Upon a Time in Notre Dame

This photo was taken in June 2017, two years before the devastating fire took place. My mother and I were in Paris, and being Big Disney fans, we just HAD to visit the Notre Dame and its infamous bell tower. Needless to say, it was breathtaking-- inside, outside, and the view from all around. Not knowing what would happen to this beautiful structure, I took a picture to save as memory. But now, I am glad I was able to-- not only capture-- but got to climb the steps and embrace the Notre Dame in all of its true glory.
