I was in Paris for work and we finalized our meetings around 3pm. That left a few hours of great light on a gorgeous day in France. I grabbed my Fujifilm X-Pro 1, a 8mm, 35mm and 85mm lens a got moving with a few colleagues.
First stop was the Eiffel Tower.
The Eiffel Tower is often overlooked as a lovely park setting where you can easily find solitude. You can write poetry, catch a nap or take up smoking. Leaving the area, I grabbed this shot of a father and son playing soccer. I want to bring Oliver here.
From the Eiffel Tower, we headed over the Louvre. I have very fond memories of the museum. It was a great opportunity to revisit I.M. Pei’s pyramid. The synthesis of modern and historic architecture works really well, in my opinion.
Just around the corner is both the Love Lock bridge and Notre Dame.
I couldn’t resist and bought a lock. I’m so tourist. And sure do love Lea.
And finally, I made it to Notre Dame. The intricacy of this structure is never ending.
The day ended late after a great meal in the Latin Quarter and an early morning out of Paris. 22 hours in Paris.
Thanks so much for reading. And if you’re interested, there are some more Paris photos, here.
