- While traveling through France, my dependable Nikon Coolpix 995 camera died. (It was time after more than 15,000 photos.) Camera-less, I made a dash to a trendy mall in Tours, France to buy a replacement. There was no way to test its capabilities under the store’s flat fluorescent lights, so I drifted outside to find a better backdrop. A few blocks away, I found the dark, cavernous interiors of the Cathedrale Saint-Gatien ‘de Tours. The image you see is the camera’s first picture – reflections of the massive stained-glass, rose window off the stone floor of the foyer. A short time later, a wedding ceremony in the cathedral concluded and the wedding party paraded past these very reflections to greet friends and family outside. My gaze followed them as the warm glow of the afternoon’s first light caressed the smiling couple amidst a shower of rose petals and flashbulbs.
