Views from Opéra Bastille

During intermission, the top exterior-facing balcony of the Opéra Bastille building provides wonderful views across Paris, through the wall of transparent glass windows forming the Bastille-facing façade of the building.
Stereotypical Parisian buildings and rooftops, stretching to the horizon.
In the sun-facing direction, the sunset-tending light provides a high contrast and high drama.

The Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame visible.

This post's theme word is campanology, "the art or study of bell-ringing or making bells." A visual survey of the Parisian skyline displays the products of several eras of campanology.
