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.

 many of the buildings probably look better in BW.



I think we were all excited to get out of the coach

for this photo opportunity.

Black and White Tuesday

 January 17, 2017


Although a majority of the images

were taken as we drove past,


they were our first sightings…


of some well known Paris land marks.

Of course I took some photos…


just because I could.


As the crow flies Melbourne is 16,781 km from Paris.

Considering we had arrived here via

a very circuitous route

I would have loved to have made it to

the top of the Eiffel Tower.

Such was not to be the case due to time constraints

and crowds of tourists!! 🙂



Hope you enjoyed.
