Paris After Dark
Paris After Dark - The "City of Lights" is absolutely my favorite city in the world. C'est bon. I have visited there many times and never tire of walking those streets. I love to walk around in the evening after a rain. With the lights, the reflections, the smells, the sounds, the bread, and the wine. I love art and museums, Paris has some of the best. I love to speak as much French as possible and try to blend in as much as possible. I hate running into "Ugly" Americans, they disgust me. The French do what they do well and they do great chilling... I like chilliin. This particular evening we were walking around after dinner and I came around this corner and standing in the background was this incredible image that represented everything I love about Paris after dark. I did not have a travel tripod in those days, so I improvised with my camera on a mailbox, resting the camera on my scarf for stability. I composed the shot and got it. This is dedicated to my wife and all the fun we have had on our many trips there. C'est la vie!
