City of reflected light

The shot above is one in a series shot last night walking from our hotel to the Louvre. It was cold and rainy, but Paris itself more than compensated for the discomforts, because Paris in the rain looks better than most cities in the sun. Such a great place. I forgot how much I missed coming here, which I used to do quite a bit, back in the mid-90s. A few bits of French even came back to me.

Anyway, I found a good connection here at (where the wi-fi is otherwise bad), so I’ve been uploading shots. Here’s the whole series, which will keep growing.

    Doc,
    If you take a series of photos from the same view point, I’ll be glad to help you stitch them into a panorama.

    Have fun over there. Wife recommends the somewhat chain-like but tasty Belgium Mussels place Leon de Bruxelles. Not sure where you are staying but they are all over. Here is one near SAINT-GERMAIN

    Wow. That photo gave me such a dose of Paris ache! If you can possibly do so, try to beg, borrow or steal a reservation at L’Amis Louis. You will not be disappointed.

    Enjoy.
