Paris at day's end
the first photo friday challenge of the new year is: "Day's End". as i am reading a book with reflections on Paris, it was the Paris photo file i opened first, remembering the bus ride i took at the end of my first day there: i wasn't sure of the route the bus would take, all i needed to know was that it would stop at Gare Saint-Lazare, where my hotel was.
the bus arrived, i climbed in - and watched Paris flow by. the bus first drove along the Seine. then it took a turn to the right, drove across a bridge - and approached a pyramid-shape building: the Louvre, at day's end, bathed in light, surreal and real at the same time, like the whole city at that hour, which felt like one endless impressionist painting.
more moments from this trip are up in Paris dans le Calme.
and more about the book, soon :)
