We recently returned from just over a week in Paris and enjoyed it more than ever. We ended up walking the streets at sunset on a few days and I managed to take these shots. I hope you enjoy them.
Here’s another image from the Ponte Alexandre III.
These tour boats called bateaux mouches (fly boats) cruise up and down the Seine using powerful floodlights to illuminate landmarks on the shore. This one is illuminating the Galerie du Vert which is at the tip of the Île de la Cité, just in front of the Pont Neuf.
If you turn to your right from where I took the previous photo, you’ll see this statue of Henry IV on the Pont Neuf.
We had a wonderful dinner at Alain Ducasse’s seafood restaurant La Rech and decided to walk back to our hotel. We came to the Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile during the blue hour and I took this shot, bracing my camera against a light post to get the 3.2 second exposure.
Here’s the Musée d’Orsay, famous for its collection of impressionist masterpieces, at sunset.
Finally, this is the Cafe Le Depart St.-Michel.
