On the Road is a weekday feature spotlighting reader photo submissions. From the exotic to the familiar, whether you’re traveling or in your own backyard, we would love to see the world through your eyes.
On the Road will continue, but it will be forever Alain’s.
TaMara here, guest posting for Alain. Happy first day of fall!
Two years ago I checked off an item on my wish list: Paris. I think afterward I posted a few photos here, but there are soooo many more and when Alain was finding time and computer constraints making his wonderful On The Road posts difficult, I volunteered to post a few photos.
Since I felt like most of the iconic images had been endlessly photographed, I tried to look for the unusual to snap.
Paris in November is just about perfect….
We stepped off the Metro on November 11, just as the church bells began to toll to acknowledge Armistice day, and stepped into Père Lachaise Cemetery. It wasn’t planned, it was just serendipity.
My hotel room had this view and I stayed awake much too long each night, just watching the light show.
The weather and fall colors were beautiful. The one day of rain we had, we spent at the Louvre and the rain only made it all more magical.
And some photos as I strolled the city:
It took us forever to realize this oddity was on a boat floating down the Seine. It was a shiny solid gold color.
Some fun in B&W:
And finally, this absolutely charming tableau that felt so totally like a scene in a movie. I had to use my phone, so the quality isn’t great, but the subject was too sweet to care:
And since I seem to have volunteered for tomorrow as well, I think I’ll share some of my Boston photos. See you then – TaMara
