Mercredi 6 Mars Paris Nights
If you get to the pool late (but at least you got there enfin)by the time you come out at 5:15 not much will be open for long like museum exhibits. Where else to head but the Apple store at the Louvre? Their wi-if is super strong. I'd love to go post there daily. I'd be done in 15 instead of an hour...
By the time Apple kicks you out at 8pm Paris is dark and probably drizzling like last night on rue de Rivoli...
What's a drizzle or two when it's Paris right? And you're passing monuments by the dozens like the Jean d'Arc golden statue at Place des Pyramids. Shoot shoot shoot!
To catch Place Vendome you'll have to shoot in the middle of the street. But no matter. At 8:30ish traffic is light.
WH Smith has long closed at 7pm so turn down rue Cambon and head for rue St. Honore for a bit of leche-vitrine/window drooling.
At rue Royale you could get run over so wait to cross the street to get your shot. Whatever does the Madeleine have to do with the cookie Madeleine if anything at all? It seems like there should be a connection like a monster madeleine cookie sitting on top..?
At place de la Concorde wait in front of Hotel Crillon for the #42 bus. It comes in 5! What's not to love about Paris public transport?
The #42 will continue to hit more highpoints like the l'Arc de Triomphe at Champs-Élysées. Shooting through the window is allowed!
Next up Place d'Alma and cross over the Seine to the left bank.
Enfin 9:00 pm and the Eiffle Tower is winking at you through the bus window. Perfect ending to a day in Paris. All photos shot with my iPad mini which I've been using since Jan 26 when my Canon broke. I'm absolutely crazy for it!
