Popping in to a church is becoming a regular pleasure for me in this city. The thing is, you never know what you're going to find, from intriguing architectural treasures to surprising exhibitions of exotic art or, quite simply, people exercising certain personal preferences.

I honestly couldn't say which of the above is more fascinating, and sometimes they turn up in twos or even threes, a sort of holy trinity if you will, but manifestations of the latter are rare to say the least.

Here we have worshippers enjoying another extremely rare sight: the only remaining jube, or rood screen in Paris. I kid you not. It's the delicately sculpted passageway we can see separating the nave from the chancel. It also has the most sumptuous double spiral staircase on either side. Stunningly capped by the fabulous rib vaulted ceiling.

Enrapturing, you might say.

And why not...
