Saturday Snapshot - Paris



Paris at 6am.
May, 2011

I took this picture out of my hotel window and then threw some clothes on and went out to wander the neighborhood with my camera. That's the Sorbonne on the right. We only had four days and I wasn't about to waste any of it sleeping in.

What a lovely picture! Somehow Paris is always instantly recognisable on photos, even if no monument is visible on them.

I love the light and the clouds on the left side of the photo. I'm obsessed with Paris, so thanks for taking me there again. Here's Mine

Smart move--you can sleep at home. :)

Alyce said...

That really captures that early morning excitement of travel! :) I am the same way about when we travel places - wanting to be exploring all hours of the day, and then usually collapsing in the evening.

Truly, truly fantastic. What joy. I want to go there so badly.

ahh - Paris - lovely. One of favorite things to do when traveling is to get out on foot early in the morning with a camera.

Cathy said...

I'm the same way when Denis and I are in the UK. By the time we get home I have a lot of sleep to catch up on! LOL

Vicki said...
