Saint-Paul-Saint-Louis

I've struggled for a long time to identify what it is about Paris' old, worn textures that attract me. I think it's partly attributed to the way that time allows nature to work its way back into manmade objects. I'm sure St. Paul was gorgeous when it was shiny and new (nearly 400 years ago), but I can't imagine it being as beautiful without the effects of the wind and rain on the doors, the accidental abrasions caused by human hands, and the green mold and moss residing on the stones.
