Flying over Sacre Coeur

This is one of the two knight and horse statues that stand at the entrance to the cathédral of Sacre Coeur in Montmartre. The airplane in the distance was unintentional but a pleasant surprise upon reviewing my photos.

When I saw the plane in the picture I started thinking about how the person who created this statue could never of imagined this scene. How quickly the world advances and the background scenery changes for each new generation. Not only will my children have better photography equipment but they will also have a completely different world tapestry to capture their pictures upon.

And I think that's what is magical about photography ... the act of being witness to a moment in time.
