Photo Round Up – Week 21

5 photo round up of what I saw/did this week.

Hope you all enjoy them.

This is by far my favorite picture so far on the European leg of m trip. It is of course of the Musée du Louvre in Paris, France. I snapped this on the 1st night I spent here as I was walking around the Louvre I noticed the reflection of everything on the water & got this amazing shot.

This is a shot of the famous Notre Dame Cathedral de Paris by night! I zoomed in closely up at the top but couldn't spot the hunchback of Notre Dame...lol jk! I love this picture because of the way it is lit up and the lights along the right hand side.

Everyone should know what this is... it's the famous "La Tour Eiffel". I opted to take a picture from a different angle instead of the normal front or side or back view. This one turned out to be my favorite of al the ones I took. I love how you can see the detail of the Tower against the dark gray cloudy sky. The tower it self is stunning and very big.

Another famous monument in Paris, The Arc de Triomphe! I took this shot from the western end of the Champs-Élysées. One of the most famous avenues in all of Paris lined up with amazing parks, and stores. Even from afar the arc looks huge and it is even bigger when you are underneath it.

This isn't an amazing photo like the above 4 this is just a shot of the streets of Paris. I wanna give you an idea of what they all look like. I am loving walking around Paris. I love that they are all about the same height, that the 1st level is always a shop and that around every corner something new awaits me.

    • Awww don’t hate me… join me!!! Oh & umm I went to Moulin Rouge today…lol! Just took some pics from the outside, didn’t bother doing anything else. Its very small and like in the middle of everything.

  7. These pictures make me miss Paris so much! When we still lived in London, we would just hop on the Eurostar for a weekend in Paris. The beauty of Europe – everything is so close!

    P.S. The last picture is my favorite. It captures Paris so well.

    • I can see how you miss Paris… this city is AMAZING. I’m going to be learning how close everything is very soon, when I start moving around. Now that you mention that about the last picture I like it even more, because it really does capture Paris. It’s all about the street here and walking around.

  11. Its only a 3 hour train ride from where I live, but I never made it to Paris so far. Would love to visit it one day. Don’t know if you are into Cycling, but very jealous of you being in Paris while the Tour de France finishes there tomorrow.

    • Oh Tijmen you should def come its such an amazing city, but I know how it feels to live near an amazing city and not go. I live less than 5hrs from New Orleans and have never been. About Tour de France… I just found out about it right now jaja. Doubt I will make it. I have no clue they come through here.

  12. Best pics to date! Could it be the new camera? Or an improving cameraman?
