Au Revoir, Paris

Paris 2014-09-07 1

It's Monday afternoon US Central Time as I write this in an American Airlines lounge in Chicago. Long ride home. One more short leg to go.

I'm glad to be back. It was a long trip for us, maybe a little too long. We love France and will return again but age is catching up and it's getting hard to trudge for hour after hour through tourist-choked cities. Maybe it's time for slower paced holidays. Hey, we're going to Tamarindo in February. That ought to work. 

I tried to shoot some non-postcard Eiffel Tower pictures yesterday. You, gentle reader, will decide if they work. Since I won't have any new local material for several days, I will sprinkle these pages with memories of La Belle France for a while longer.

I really like the perspective in that first shot, and black and white feels appropriate.

Your first photo is a huge winner, Bob, and your third photo is good, too. I am not seeing the second photo.

And don't give me that line about being too old. I am older than you and travel a lot and I am out there on the go all day long when I travel.

Nice take on the tower. You sound a bit stressed, never a fun feeling when you are travelling the world.

They are brilliant. You have done an awful lot in very little time and I'm so sorry to have kept you up so late.

The top shot is my absolute favorite!

When I first looked at your first photo my thought was, that is different. It is outstanding! They are all very creative! In this great photos you show how to take special unusual photos.
