“He had a heart that could have held the empire of the world; and, in the end, he had to contend himself with a cellar.”

Note: As I hinted to before, Culture is very important to me even though its declining, and it’s not just me saying this for there are people much smarter and well-rounded than myself who hold this opinion.

Even so, I see no more fitting place to begin sharing photography from around the world than that of the Paris Opera House, one of the places I would Love to venture too in the future and easily one of my top ten destinations in my ‘bucket list’.

Moreover, part of the thematic foundation of my Noctis Blackburn pen name stems for my Love of Phantom of the Opera.  In fact, my account on various social media features a mask, as well as part of the interior of the Paris Opera House.  Eventually I myself plan on writing something regarding this timeless and stunning place, but now is not the time.

Likewise, photography tends to set my soul on fire rather often.  So while this might only be a picture to one person, it certainly might mean the world to someone else, like me.  So don’t discount the power of photography simply because it doesn’t get the credit that it deserves.
