Paris (and Brussels): 5 Days, 500 shots

I was amazed when I uploaded the photos of the Thanksgiving weekend trip to Paris and BXL to find out I'd taken 167 shots on the iPhone and 333 on my fantastic Canon EOS Rebel. After I'd removed the accidently taken shots of my shoes I was left with a round 500 images of the two European capitals. Some of them I've posted via my twitter account and a lot more will go up on flickr over the next few days but here - just for the flavour, so to speak - is un petit tour...


Paris: Mademoiselles in the Jardin des Tuileries


Paris: "Big Girls" in Montmartre


Paris: Job Opportunities


Paris: From Pont de l'Alma to the Basilique du Sacré-Cœur


Brussels: Plaisirs d'hiver/Winter Pret - real genever or Peket


Brussels: surreality à pied

and finally....


Brussels: The Guy tries to comprehend the city's Xmas Decorations

He's dying with joy--- you'll have to come over to crack it open with the man himself.

Hi how are you?

I was looking through your blog, and I found it interesting, and inspiring to me, so I thought why not leave you a comment.

I too have a blog that I use out of Southern California here in San Diego.

Mostly it is a collection of artistic expression, and I have many friends with the same interests, maybe you can become my friend, and follow, and I can also follow you, if that is okay.

Well I hope to hear from you soon, and or read about you….LOL

Sincerely,
Jesse

Lovely photos! I may or may have not seen the same big girls on the steps of Sacre Couer in October...for real!! I did not get a photo, though. The "girls" were having a tough time with the steps and their stilettos. :-)

Welcome home! I hope you had a fabulous time.

the big gals were having a great time until it rained - walking in stilettos on slippery cobblestones, bad idea!
