Snail's Postcard Post

Under the Paris Sky

I recently received this postcard book from a friend’s trip to Paris!IMG_9318IMG_9319IMG_9320IMG_9321IMG_9322IMG_9323IMG_9324InvalidesIMG_9325Pont Alexandre III (bridge named for Russia’s Tsar Alexander) and Invalides DomeIMG_9326Place de la ConcordeIMG_9327I think this winter shot of the Tuileries Garden is the most visually interesting in the bunch. Over 3,000 years old, the Luxor Obelisk at the left originally stood at the entrance of the Luxor Temple in Egypt, where its twin remains. The Arc de Triomphe is in the distance.IMG_9328The LouvreIMG_9329I’m always amazed that preservation-devoted Paris allowed I.M. Pei’s entry pyramids in the Louvre courtyard. Personally, I like the contrast. I think it works because the glass is see-through, and the structures don’t look heavy.IMG_9330Hotel de VilleIMG_9331Pont d’Arcole and the Hotel de VilleIMG_9332Place de VosgesIMG_9333Place de VosgesIMG_9334Île de la Cité. This little natural island in the Seine is the heart of Paris, where it began to flourish as a city in Medieval times. This postcard gives a good view of Notre Dame… IMG_9335IMG_9336Sacre CoeurIMG_9337

We’ll always have Paris…
