City Of Lights

Two last photos from Paris. It has been freezing since I came back. The first photo shows how to relax in Paris. The sunlight and fog make it a timeless picture of an office worker relaxing with legs dangling over the River Seine quayside.Time spent still appreciating whats before us.


A Cheeky Notre Dame bird. These stay in a bush just opposite the Gothic Cathedral. A man fed them from his hand. They flew up and sat eating from his hand, six or eight birds. They had a snack then flew back to the bush. My garden birds would never sit this close to me.
Paris is the city of Lights and love.
I loved the lights, both day and night, the food, the communitys in the cafe's and restaurants, the coffee's and pain au chocolate, The numerous Flowers, plants, and Tree's that adorned the city. The Chocolaterie, and Patisserie. The fresh Vegetables and fruit displayed at the front outside the shop. The Metro system that seemed to run smoothly, and all the passengers were polite to each other. The dogs being lovingly walked and dressed by doting owners. The numerous amount of seats and benches all around Paris making you sit down and watch the people go past. Like famous French writers and Artists throughout the years.Grab a coffee and chill out. The many museums in the city, the historic buildings throughout Paris and its twenty Arrondisements (districts). These are the heart of Paris.
I will return again soon I hope.

Very Nice Pictures. It is hard to get birds in a nice shot like that.

Thanks Seedswap, you can only get that close if you have a long lense, or semi wild birds who interact with people a lot.

Hi Lisa,I work hard, but have time between long days or nights to chill in the garden, to watch the plants and the birds. And time of course to blog to communicate with the blogosphere.Paris was magic, if you ever get a chance its worth it!I am planning the next trip now...
