Place de Bastille

Last June, Place de la Bastille was my "hood"!  I snapped this shot after coming up from the Métro one afternoon. I think I need to pay homage to my dear Paris ami, Laurent. I'm pretty sure he took a similar and much better photograph earlier on his blog, Daily Photo in Paris. Laurent, you're my inspiration!

Beautifully done, otherwise to the passerby just an ordinary lamp post.

Nice picture, I never noticed those lamp posts even though the pictures I posted today are also from la place de la Bastille :)

I thank all of my new visitors/commenters here today and everyday.

I'm glad to introduce you to our dear Laurent. Genie had the pleasure of meeting him in person earlier this month. Sadly , he and I will miss each other yet again in Janvier. One day.........:)
