Paris in November #8 – Photography

I was asked by some friends if I taken any photo’s of the Eiffel Tower. I know it sounds silly but I didn’t take many, as it seems to have been shot to death. The first time I saw it I didn’t realize there were 2 small lakes and large grassy area’s  around the tower. Every photo that I could remember showed concrete and roadways with no water or grass. So…… Photo’s of the tower, while trying not to photograph the tower.

Paris in November #7 – Photography

Very overcast and cold but we decided to walk down to Notre Dame and then up to the Luxembourg Gardens.  The gardens are beautiful even this time of year with blooming mums hanging everywhere.

Paris in November #5 – Photography

 We decided to walk around the outside of the Louvre before going across the Seine to the Musee d’ Orsay. The first photo is of Jeane photographing some of the detail/decoration as you enter through the archway. The second photo shows one of the small pyramids.

Paris in November #3 – Photography

 The first photo is a door (detail) that we found in the Latin Quarter close to the Sorbonne. The second photo was taken on the walking bridge over the Seine, couple’s have started hanging locks onto the chain fencing along the side. They write or engrave thier names and initials onto the locks and then secure them to the fencing, hopefully to remain forever. The third photo was taken along the seine below the Tuileries garden.

Paris in November #2 – Photography

As we walked around Paris the thing that seem to always catch my eye is the architectural detail.  It would take a lifetime to photograph it all, so imagine how many lifetime’s it took to design and create.  Walking around Paris is like walking back through time, you pass churches built during Charlemagne’s time, walk across bridges constructed while Napoleon ruled.
