Paris Rouge - L'autobus


Only fools and first time visitors to Paris stop as they are crossing the Champs Élysées to take a photo!

V, on David's first trip in March we did almost get run over, but the place was crawling with tourists. Love the rainy days in Paris....

I am not going to rate it as either brave or foolish. (I would have done the same.) But, it was well worth the risk. The little spots of red make the photo. You HAD to keep the image in color.

Haha. I have a fab picture taken at night as I stopped to take a photo. You can clearly see the headlights of the car that would have hit me if hubby hadn't grabbed me! xxxx

I'll have to remember not to be a fool when i visit there for the first time! I'll remember your wise warning, V. Beautiful photo. I love the pop of a vivid RED. It's a 'power color' that's for sure..
