My Beloved Old Paris

SAM_2395

Following the Paris “series”, I decided to share a few more views of my beloved city. 
The “old” in the title, implies that you will see here photos from a previous visit.
What differentiates them from the recent ones are my photo-skills which improve over time and the fact that they are taken in summer, while the new ones are in autumn.
This may or may not have an impact -let’s see.
So, for your eyes only…

Paris and Paris again

Have you ever heard about writer’s block? It’s the condition under which the writer lacks ideas, mood or even discipline in order to sit down and use fingers to write.
Has it ever happened to you?
Good! Well, not so good concerning its damage; I am just happy to find common thing between people.
Now, take writer’s block and wonder: What’s its opposite which produces the same result?
Out of personal experience I can say that total ankylosis in writing procedure is also caused by the … hordes, millions, kilos, kilometers of ideas which are crowding near the tiny exit of the mind and seek to become a script, text etc.
These explained, the daily menu includes visual material created a few months ago during my travel in Paris.
Regular (Greek) readers must have seen photos from my previous “fresh” journey and you have read many of my experiences. In order that the young are informed and the elders recall, you can find them here.

This time though, I will not reveal “chilling” details of the journey and I’ll just say that I felt at home -so to speak and hopefully- me the ex rookie and I’ll also say that later, while showing my photos, I found that my abilities have improved.
Wish you conclude the same!

With the least commenting from me, enjoy a part of the photos -they are too many to include in one posting.
So, admire my beloved (Eiffel Tower) (yes, it’s a boy!) with clouds or sun, from near by or away, in day and at night, with “normal” lights, as the Paris attacks came later.
Find also some photos of the beloved Park Monceau for which you can find encyclopedic  or tourist information here and here respectively.
Imagine circumstances and write stories. They will be wonderful anyway!
