This week’s image is a photo of the Pont Alexandre III in Paris, with the Hôtel des Invalides in the background. It’s one of the prettiest bridges in the city, in my opinion. It certainly is the most highly decorated and extravagant, that’s for sure.
I’m a huge fan of all of the cherub statues, ornate Art Nouveau style lamps that line the railing. And can we just speak about all the gold. Just look at all that gilt gold! On the dome, on the winged horses and on the railings. And in case you are wondering, yes it’s real. 24-Carat golf leaf kinda real. *le sigh*
