Au Revoir Paris!


No, this is NOT Birmingham, but today I wing my way back home from Paris. I have had a magical summer in France . I thought it might be nice to share a special Paris photo with you today so that you can see why I don't want leave! As many times as I have had the privilege of traveling here, I never tire of the spectacular sites in this city. I took this on Sunday night when Peter ( Peter's Paris ) , Janet ( DC Confidential) and Maya ( Maya Photography) and I ended a jampacked day of sightseeing and photography at the Louvre with a quick late night shoot. Au revoir!

Paris la ville lumière et ta photo lui rend hommage. Dur de quitter une ville que l'on aime (chaque année c'est très dur de quitter NYC, je te comprends).
Paris the city light and your photograph pays tribute to him. Hard to leave a city which they like (every year it is very hard to leave NYC, I understand you).

Virginia, Thank you for sharing your magical summer with all of us. I (almost) feel like I've been there myself!

Virginia said...

Judy, I am flying standby and may be living in Charles de Gaulle for who knows how long. HELP! This isn't what I meant when I said I wanted to live here.

Even though we have family living in Paris, we don't visit them often. One of the reasons is that everything is so expensive! Did you find that so?

Stunning composition, V! Just a beautiful shot. I'm sure the city of light will haunt your dreams for months to come. Thanks for sharing the beauty and folks you met during your sojourn in France. Welcome home.
