Springtime in Paris

My first picture of Paris - I'll never forget what it felt like to stand on Le Pont Neuf, looking out at the Seine for the first time, with the beautiful city in the background. Just amazing...


La Musee Du Louvre
The sheer size of this building meant that the only way I could get a picture of the entire this was from the top of the Eiffel Tower. I have never been that overwhelmed by a building before - the Louvre is bigger than a city block, and it would probably take a week to see everything inside.







I can't even describe the "bigness" of Notre Dame Cathedral. It literally took my breath away. Even from the top of the Eiffel Tower, you can see it clearly among the hundreds of other buildings. Such a beautiful work of art...





This is the "Hotel de Ville", a very famous Parisian landmark, and the place where many political decisions were made before, during, and after the French Revolution. Just like everything else in the city, the architecture is amazing.

I can't have pictures of Paris without including the Eiffel Tower. I'm pretty sure that there are about 50 pictures of this incredible landmark - after going through and deleting some. Simply put, it's one of the most photogenic things I've even been lucky enough to photograph.



There are several more pictures, which I will probably post at random times, but these few caught me eye today.

My last photograph of Paris. It seemed fitting to capture the sunset over the Seine...

    Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
    Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
    Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also [url=http://twitter.com/jetlyca]q Buy Viagra Online[/url] you can find on our sites.
    Generic [url=http://viagra.olistupa.ru]Viagra Super Active[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

    Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
    The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
