  1. Hello Lorissa,

    Would it be possible to use your B&W image of Paris within a documentary I’m currently working on. It’s to commemorate the 25 anniversary of a video games company and their most popular game is based in Paris. The first screen within the game happens to have a gargoyle on top of Notre Dame.
