Let's Go to Paris

We returned from Paris on January 5. Since then I have been sorting through the 500+ photographs from the trip to edit them down to a reasonable number for on-line viewing. I posted the London collection a few days ago, and today (ta-da) I am posting the Paris collection. Ah, the Paris Collection (with a capital C) sounds like Fashion Week in Paris; not quite, but fun none the less. I enjoy culling though all the pictures as it brings back great memories from the trip. 
The Paris set starts with a panoramic of the Louvre museum across the Seine. We then take a walk through the Left Bank, on to the Pompidou Center and the modern art museum. Next stop is the Place de Vosges, a delightful small square just a block from our Right Bank hotel. We then take a stroll through Ile de St. Louis, to Ile de la Cite and Notre Dame and the Memorial to the Deportees. As we wander the street of Paris, we visit a district we have not visited on previous trips, Canal St. Denis (he of lost head fame - see Notre Dame).  After a quick night shot of the Christmas decorations in Rue Cler, we see some of Paris in Black & White. For the grand finale we return to the Champ de Mars for a final look at the Eiffel Tower at night. Here we stood on New Years Eve, 2009, as we had on New Years Eve 1999. Ooh-la-la.
