I am sitting here this morning, tuning into the final laps of the Tour de France. Not so much for the cycling, I shamelessly admit, but more for the scenes of Paris. The Eiffel Tower, the Place de la Concorde, the Arc du Triomphe with the 12 spokes of the streets that shoot out like sun rays, the Seine, the Louvre and the most spectacular aerial views of Paris that are being broadcast during the race. It is so green and beautiful there. I started thinking about some of the wonderful pictures that I have seen over the years of Paris and I remembered one of the most amazing, unbelievable panoramic shots of Paris, shot near Notre Dame, at night. It is a complete 360˚ shot of Paris, and it left me speechless. Click here to see it….and don’t forget to tell me what you think, unless of course it leaves you speechless too!
Sidenote: The photographer is Arnaud Frich and his work is downright amazing. You can visit his actual website to view more of his exquisite work. But be forewarned…if you’ve never ever dreamed of going to Paris, if you have never found a reason, after viewing his photos you will be feverishly planning your first trip!
