With Her Head in the Clouds


Rainy days in Paris are to be expected and embraced.  La Tour had her head all up in the clouds my last day in Paris.  I think it becomes her!!!

I love how this perspective makes the city of Paris disappear... It almost seems that you are shooting from low in a field

The crown of mist suits La T quite well!

Bisous,
Genie

Yes, she looks lovely! Nice capture Virginia.

Rob said...

Belle! Nice shot, I guess that sort of picture is easy to miss.

Genie,
From Tuileries! :)

I don't think people believe how tall it is if they haven't seen it.

Alexa said...

Oh my—she looks quite ethereal, doesn't she? (I JUST took a very similar shot of the Chrysler Building—quelle coincidence.)

Virginia said...

Alexa, like a gauzy chapeau!

Ashbags,
I was overwhelmed the first time I stood beneath her and looked up. She is far grander than the photographs

Rob,
I photograph her from all over Paris. :)

Je préfère le soleil.

I just knew it! I knew if I clicked on your bookmark I'd see the Eiffel Tower. Thanks for not disappointing!

Virginia said...

Starman,
We ALL préfère le soleil, but realistically in Paris we have to find other ways to float our boats, or bateuaus or whatever! :)

Suz,
It's all about the ET and YOU!!!

I love what you've written here. The shot is great! Very accurate of Parisian weather.

Virginia said...

Nope, I was in TUileries looking up at her!
