Classic Paris V. Great choice to go with black and white. It separates each layer of distance beautifully. J.

Je ne voudrais pas te faire de peine, mais il y a quelque temps, la grande roue n'était pas là.

Gros bisous

This view makes my heart jump. I wish that the town planners in Melbourne had the same vision – to preserve our skyline. There once was a “Paris” end of Melbourne that has been decimated by soulless skyscrapers and nappropriate development. Bisous

I love this view! However I've never seen La Grande Roue. It's gone every time I'm in Paris. :(
