    Paris, France, the city of light. Come share your pictures of this capital of France, the heart of the Île-de-France and one of my favorite cities in Europe.

    The Seine River near the Eiffel tower.

    An interesting perspective on the tower, I think.

    Another of my favorite shots of the tower.

    I take too many pictures of Paris. Here is a set I took on a one day trip towards DEQM.

    I adored our hotel in Versailles - the Trianon Palace, mainly for the historical value of all the treaties that have been signed. there.

    While not technically IN Paris, Monet's swingin' pad in Giverny is but a day trip away . . .

    As others have posted elsewhere on MP, I too was unimpressed with the Mona Lisa. One would think The Louvre might display it in a nicer frame instead of a page protector from L'Office Depot ! ;)

    I added to London so I guess I'll add to the Paris thread too. From November 2005, not that it matters.

    beautiful photos all... Paris is really growing on me, I didn't really care for it the first time I visited.

    I like Paris, but I fell in love with Alsace. Places like Colmar, Munster (with its famous smelly cheese), Kaysersberg (birthplace of Albert Schweitzer), Strasbourg, Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg, Selestat, Neuf-Brisach and others are taking me be back to that area again and again. Every time I go back to Europe, I spend some time in Alsace (and Black Forest in Germany that has enticed me too). I am very busy right now, but I promise to dig out some pictures and post them soon...

    I live in Paris and see the Eiffel tower everyday from my balcony:) So I rarely take photos of "home" although I'm tempted to show the "real" Paris which is rather less glamourous... but decided to share two more touristy pics. The first was the view from Trocadero watching the world cup last year and the other is from the first time taking a boat tour on the Seine after living here 10 years.

    Despite only "living" in Paris for a summer I've got some of those "real" Paris pictures as well. Still, all in all there are worse places to be. Like Edmonton, AB in February. [​IMG]

  25. I've got some great photos but it seems that their size is too large to post. [​IMG] Am I doing something wrong?
