CDP Theme Day - Photo of the Year 2012


It's the first of January and that means that City Daily Photobloggers around the globe are scurrying around, digging through their photos to come up with their favorite/best photo of 2012.  Trying to choose my favorite was daunting so I opted for my favorite "Paris Moment" this past year.  Standing on the rooftop of Galeries Lafayette at sunset, my last day in Paris in January,  takes the prize this year.

Merci to my dear travel amie Mary Gilbert,  for saving the best for the last day and for snapping this photo!

You can see my CDP blog friends' favorite photos right HERE and have a look.

BONNE ANNÉE !

I feel so honored to have been behind the lens on this one - can't wait to snap some more of our fair Virginie!

Kim said...

Those of us who live vicariously through your Paris adventures really "get" this image. I'm standing right there beside you in spirit and wish we could tramp a few of those streets together. Thanks for taking us all along with you through your lens. And can't wait for this next trip and your updates from it. Enjoy!

Great shot Virginia. I adore this kind of photo in B/W.

I can see why this is a fave -- It's really another memory jump for me, recalling how I did exactly the same thing, from the same place, and loved it! What a view -- best in Paris, I think!
