Just a quick note to say bonjour from Paris! I have been walking my legs off, and taking pictures of course. There is never a lack of photogenic subjects in this beautiful city...just look at the exquisite carvings on the Louvre!
And you can't come to Paris without doing a little shopping right?! I popped by Merci today and picked up a little something.
It has been very cold and sometimes rainy while we've been here, but I had to brave the freezing temps tonight to get some pictures of the Eiffel Tower. And I have to say that it was well worth not being able to feel my feet for about a 1/2 hour after we got back home.
We are having a wonderful time and I am seeing parts of the city I have never seen before, so it's like a new adventure each day. I can't wait to get back home and process some of the images I have taken since I have taken quite a few HDR shots of the city.
The French have been so warm and welcoming, and last night I had a lovely conversation with an elderly French woman who was out walking her dog. Between her broken English and my broken French we managed to tell each other all about our families, our pets, and our shared love of Paris. She then told me that this was the city of her birth, and you could tell how much that meant to her...it was very touching to see her still in love with this beautiful place.
I have much more to tell (and show) you all when we get back...including the chance meeting we had tonight with another artist and her husband who were seated next to us at dinner. I feel so very lucky to have had this opportunity to travel once again. The only thing that could make this better would be if our kids were here with us...next time I hope!
Until next time...
