Home Again

It's great to be back! With the exception of this photo and some for Weekend Reflections I'll be be posting the pictures that I took in Europe on my other blog Something Sighted. I've already posted a few and I'll be posting them for a long time to come. This picture is another version of my other blog's new header photo. I hope you all enjoyed Weekend Reflections while I was away. I'm looking forward to the fun this weekend!

The boy in this picture just stood there in awe of the Eiffel Tower for quite a while.

Beautiful shot!! What were your impressions of Paris? Did you visit the sidewalk cafes? I just wonder if you had the same experiences my sister did when she went.

Doreen said...

this is beautiful!! I would be in awe also.

Welcome back! Looking forward to checking out more of your trip photos!

This one is gorgeous. My daughters are visiting Paris in June. And W.P. and I are making plans for Amsterdam and Copenhagen, with maybe a short stop in London and Salisbury, where we have friends. So, so exciting. That'll get me through the winter.

Ciao!

Glad you had a safe and happy trip, nice to see you had some sunshine! The only way I've seen the Eiffel tower in my visits is with gray skies and drizzle. It does look a lot more impressive with a blue sky as a backdrop!

Nice to have you back.

Stickup Artist said...

I am in awe as well, and equally so with the sky! What a gorgeous view.

Owen said...

Nice angle on the Eiffel Tower James, and it looks like the boy on the horse was there for a little while also...
:-)
I love this area, when I was living in Paris as a student I lived just a short walk from here...

We're glad that you had a beautiful sunny day in Paris, at this time of the year chances are of a lot of rain!
God bless you!

Brings back a lot of good memories of our trip to Paris long long ago. Welcome back, James!

jeannette said...

Never seen the Eiffel tower with a sky like this! Did you do the climb?
I should have, because instead, I was harassed by gypsies, who even demanded I share my cookies with them!

arabesque said...

i don't think i've seen La tour from this angle before, it's indeed such a wonderful sight and the sky couldn't be better. ^0^

JM said...

Not much not to like about this shot of the iconic Eiffel, James. Welcome back! I'll be following your photos of Paris... even if I can't comment every day... the work plate is still too full.

Tash said...

Magnifique! Nice to see that the weather cooperated. Looks like we had similar skies (http://mostlylacounty.blogspot.com/2010/11/london-bridges-on-sunday-sunday-bridges.html) with cool but sunny weather.

Brilliant image!

Amy said...

The sky is so bright and clear; what a perfect setting for such a beautiful monument of sorts. Great photo!

Carolyn Ford said...

SO beautiful! Keep 'em coming, James!
