Happy Bastille Day! A Tribute to Paris in Moods

My very first trip overseas landed me in France, where I celebrated both Bastille Day and my 16th birthday all in the same week, in Paris. I still remember being addressed as "mademoiselle"...sigh. Even as a "madame" now, Paris will always hold a special place in my heart, and will always be photogenic in my eyes. Every time I visit Paris, j'ai quinze ans encore. So to honor Bastille Day, I'm sharing a photographic tribute to the iconic sights of Paris, in three moods (taken on most recent return to Paris in April of this year):

Eiffel Tower







Notre Dame Cathedral







Scenes of the Seine







The Flower Market








And because the camera is meant to be turned:

At any age, Paris doesn’t care if you’re here or not, if you’re old or not; but you can’t help caring that you are in Paris.
