Photographer's Note

A cheese shop on the Ile St. Louis. Everything looked so good to eat.

The Ile St-Louis was originally two smaller islands: the Ile aux Vaches (Island of the Cows), originally nothing but pasture; and the Ile Notre-Dame, site of judicial duels during the Middle Ages. It wasn't until the 17th century that the 2 islands were united. After the construction, lords and financiers built their homes here. As a result, the Ile St-Louis remains a lovely place to walk around and admire the mansions, still standing, as well as the many quaint shops. The Ile St. Louis is attached to the Ile de la Cité (the cradle of Parisian civilization and where Notre Dame has stood since the Middle Ages) via bridge.

Technical: Some cropping and sharpening.
