Beware for Your Lost Things
Beware for Your Lost Things (Nikon D5000)

On a trip to the Eiffel Tower I saw this sign. Now I knmow what it means, I just think the sign justseems a little silly and a little confusing. It's not as if it is general in that all things are going to be destroyed, it's a particular lost thing, perhaps even a lost thing you lost years ago. If it's a specific lost thing lost years ago, it does appear to be pretty cruel. Not only are they going to take the trouble to track down that lost thing of yours and go to the time and trouble of all that, but they are going to then destroy it and presumably not tell you about it. Those are some pretty serious mind games for you. Of course the bottom of the sign seems to suggest items that you may have lost such as a motorbike, bicycle and a pram, presumably without a child in it, but even that's not 100% from here. Weird huh?

Shepherds Following the Star
Shepherds Following the Star (Nikon D5000)

It's a weird on this. It all started on Christmas day. We looked out of the hotel room and saw this light in the sky beaming down (or more probably beamiung from groiund to the sky, but who knows). Of course you might imagine that this has happened before, I think there is a story about it, I just can't quite remember. Anyway after much discussion we decided to head out and look for the source. A couple of people said it was the Eiffel Tower, but I suspected not bearing in mind where it was in relation to the hotel. I was pretty sure it was in the Place de Vendom. It was at the Place de Vendom I started to think the light in the sky was the moon, it was looking quite likely, however I was sure that there was more to it, because in the hotel there were definately beams going up... or down. Anyway like three Shepherds on the first Christmas, however the first Christmas wasn't on the 25th and there were 4 of us, and none of us could heard sheep. Apart from that, it was quite spiritual following the light to find. A square. No not the baby Jesus, the Place De Madelaine where spotlights were being projected into the sky to a point.

Think there were quite a few good pictures taken here, but this might be the best, but who knows.

Paris Lock-in
Paris Lock-in (Nikon D5000)

Another busy day with walking all over the place to the Pompidou Centre and joining a queue for something unknown just to get in to find that it was just the entrance to the place itself. Of course turn the corner and there's another entrace and it has no queue at all. You live and learn huh? We allso fitted in Notre Dame as well, so wilst these things aren't that far apart, collectively, it's been a busy day what with the trip from the hotel and back again. Add to that walking around a subterranean mall and you have yourself one very varied day. Of course now it's back at the hotel for a well earned beer or two.

This picture is of Ponte du Neuf where lovers attach padlocks inscribed with their names. I don't think this is te most famous place to do it, however this is a place and I have a picture of it so there. I think we passed the real one which I believ featered in a film that neither my daughter or I could remember the name of. Never mind, I don't remember it being any good.

A View From the Hotel
A View From the Hotel (Nikon D5000)

It's been quite a long day, in fact quite a long two days starting with a rather scary flight what with the horrendous wind causing turbulence and a landing that now has me cause for concern in future. A fear that I have previously escaped due to ignorance. It came as a huge surprise once the wheels hit the ground that the aircraft lurched wildly across the tarmac. Anyway, life's tough huh, the rest has just been just the usual for a Christmas in Paris. So this morning it was down the Champs-Élysées for a gander at the Christmas markets and off to the Arc du Triomph. Mind you that's a lot of walking.

Anyway, before all that that there was a bit of walking around the Louver before anyone had awoken and after that there was this pic which is a view from the hotel room. It did require me to hang outof the room hoping that I had a proper grip on the camera. Along with all of this it was put oin timer, the screen was flipped out so that I had some approximation of what I was taking. Even so I am so glad it came out so clear, with the A longish exposure with me hanging out of the window I am amzed that you can see anything clearly. Anyway, what you see is the road which comes to an end at a glass building that is the reflecting the road making it look longer, and in the distance is the Sacre Coer.
