Sur les toits de Paris

Every once in while I take myself off to a Parisian monument....just because.

If you don't watch yourself, you can become very lazy and blasé about all the lovely buildings that make up this city. Having said that, I just can't ever get enough of the Eiffel Tower. Around my neighbourhood, I know most of the spectacular angles from where the "Grande Dame" can be spotted and even after four years I still turn to catch a peek of her, every single time.

Today I need some air and was hoping to get a nice blue sky as a backdrop for my photos. So the blue sky did not materialise but the view was still spectacular...

There's my "Grande Dame de Fer"

Sacré Coeur trying to catch a ray of sun

A majestic looking Champs Elysées

with a chaotic Place de l'Etoile

Rickshaws waiting for customers

... just can't get enough...

A well-trodden avenue leading towards Trocadero

La Defense, Paris' business district
