Tuesday-PC-Wk144_Bank

~~~~~~

 

I’m being a rebel this week and not walking a bank…

but photographing one.

Images are not so good..my apologies…but you get the idea.

Tourists or locals?

whichever, it was a great way to spend our last evening in…

 

Paris.

T is for Tower…

Eiffel Tower.

The Tower of London does not look like

a typical tower, however…

FOWChallenge-Intersection

~~~~~

Since our visit to…

the Champs Elysees and…


marveling at the amount of traffic pass around l’Arc de Triomphe,

I have often commented that it appeared to be

the intersection of 4 or 5 roads. 

This morning Google maps tells me I am incorrect. 

There are actually 12 roads intersecting at l’Arc de Triomphe.

A pity there has been so much trouble in that area

over the past week or so.

FOWChallenge-Stability

~~~~~

During one of this weekend’s news/current affairs

shows, I heard that Notre Dame de Paris

Had lost much of its stability,

particularly to the right of this photo.

 Apparently the walls are only being held in place…


By these ageing ‘stays’ for lack of a better word.


Gargoyles were said to be falling and stone fences

around the roof have wooden replacements.

It was said that hundreds of millions of dollars

were needed to give the Cathedral a

thorough make over to take

the instability out of the building.

A wet day in Murano…

spent window shopping or just strolling…

 

or lunching with new-found friends.

 

For these couples a stroll along the Grand Canal

I initially titled this Young Love.

Captured on the Champs-Élysées, Paris.

 

Tourists or locals? 

Either way they all appeared to be enjoying… 

 

a night out as we cruised the River Seine.
