Paris, City of Light

A year ago at this time, we were in Paris. It would be over a week before the Icelandic Ash Cloud would delay our journey home on a series of marathon plane flights, so we were still enjoying the city. I've already posted many of my photos of the gargoyles of Notre Dame Cathedral. I thought this month I'd post some of my other more mysterious photos from Paris (including some of Notre Dame's less famous gargoyles).

I'll start today with a literal interpretation of the City of Light: the gorgeous old lamp posts that line the city's streets.



  1. Oh my gosh, Gigi, we were there last year, too, at about the same time!

    Love the pictures of lampposts, so beautiful and lacy.

    Hope you get to return soon!

  2. Oh wow, Nancy -- I wonder if we saw each other at a sidewalk cafe without knowing it! We stayed near Rue Cler.

  3. It's been more than 20 years since I was in Paris, but your pictures brought back memories as if I'd been there yesterday.

    Thank you!

  5. The ash cloud was a huge pain at the time, but in retrospect it does make for a good story.
