The Paris I Love

The title of this post is actually the title of a book that my cousin gave me when I first visited Paris in 1981. That aside, it fits. Paris is a gorgeous city. It's also fun, charming and comfortable.

I already posted a couple of these photos in an early post about this trip. So if a couple look familiar, that's why. Now, they're just taking their place in the proper order of the shots, as I took them...

Young people gather on the little islands and along the banks of the Seine in the evening.

Look at that. No landmarks or special structures. Just neighborhood buildings, and it's beautiful!

More people hanging out along the Seine. A few years back, Marc and I took a stroll with our cousins along one bank. It's lovely and relaxing.

To those who commented on the prior posts, thank you! It's always nice to know the photos are appreciated.

I love picture of the Eiffel Tower at dusk. So Industrial Age-ish and romantic. Pretty, pretty!

I really did enjoy my time in Paris. It is SO cool. One of my dreams is to live there for a year.

Ooh, Andy, what a great idea!

Your photos are postcard-worthy!

I've never been to Paris, but I've always wanted to go for the Beaujolais Nouveau festival in November. I hear people just wander the streets drinking wine. Sounds like heaven.

Paris at night. It doesn't get any better.

I just had a sudden urge to play Exultate Jubilate by Mozart after looking at these pictures. :)
