A Paris Perspective: The River and Bridges

Standard

It is impossible to complete my perspective until I have paid homage to the River Seine and beautiful bridges of Paris.  Without them, Paris would, well still be spectacular but somehow less so.

In keeping with my usual travel routine of always having a movie location to find in famous cities, Paris was no different.  For example, in Rome, I searched for the Mouth of Truth from Roman Holiday, in Venice - The Italian Job, in Vera Cruz – Romancing the Stone, and in Paris – The Bourne Idendity .  More particularly, Pont Neuf (Jason wasn’t there, I checked) .  Along the way, however, I discovered Pont Neuf was just one of many unique and wonderful bridges in Paris.  Here are a few of my favorite perspectives:

And here the pigeons of Venice thought they were the only ones that could swarm.

And now, my photo story is all told out – until I am lucky enough to  be in Paris again.

Long live snails…because I would rather they live than have to eat them.
