The View From le Palais de Chaillot



Somtimes I think I should just step back and offer a magnificent view of Paris. What more could I possibly add? Well maybe this...... j'adore Paris!!!

My friend Daryl in NYC recently gave away a great new guidebook, NEW YORK IN 10 SECONDS! I won one of the copies!! Got me thinking that maybe I'd have a little giveaway here. I'll be giving a Paris Through My Lens 2010 Calendar away on Christmas Eve. Leave a comment telling me why you deserve to have it, and I'll put your name in the drawing. Ho Ho Ho.

(Want to see the whole calendar? Look on the sidebar to your right and click on the calendar!)

Oh, well done! The young miss looks like she's staring at La Tour Eiffel, and that pigeon was so nice to fly in for this.
