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.
This series was created by Alain Chamot (1971-2020) as a place to share our adventures and observations, no matter where we are. 💕
I have truly enjoyed Paris After Dark.
Before we say farewell, here’s one last trip to Paris.
This amazing image is me, practicing my yoga near this iconic tower. I took this fantastic photo with my “delay until I’m at the perfect point for the shot” setting on my camera phone, so it had to be the first photo in my vacation book.
My friend, Dave, the photographer, had this to say: “This image from wag might be my favorite of the entire series. I’m a sucker for reflections, and action shots, and this has both of those going for it. Add in the iconic tower and it really is a stunning image.”
I call him the Thinker. We are kindred spirits.
This is the outdoor cafe where I will spend part of every day. Random dogs will find me and just hang out.
Whenever I am in Paris, it will be Christmas. And springtime, and the weather will be perfect.
I know it’s a cemetery, but I love the feeling of this particular place. Besides, who can go to France without visiting a cemetery?
Even on cloudy days, I love to walk by the water. So peaceful.
No wonder they call it the City of Light. Blue skies, amazing light. I love to walk along the water on days like this.
This is where I stay when I am in Paris. Such a lovely place!
As soon as all these cars leave, we will have the place to ourselves.
There’s nothing like the water at sunset.
This might be my favorite place in Paris.
My friend, Dave, the photographer, loves this one, too, and said this: “Night skies are tricky to photograph, even though Bill makes this look easy in his weekly contributions. The textural almost-but-not-quite repeat in the sky and the water makes this one from dextrous even more special.”
Farewell, Paris, until next time. 💕
