I got in trouble with the Higher Authority for taking this photo. You see, tripods were not allowed inside, so I decided to take this as a personal Level 15 Tripod challenge. I figured the church stopped arresting people for sins a long time ago, at least this was the theory I was working with. I did manage to get my tripod inside Sainte-Chapelle here and squeeze off some photos before a rather serious Frenchman came up to me with the cease and desist.
