Pont d'Arcole - la nuit

Pont d'Arcole

Walking in Paris at night 
after most of the crowds are gone is a favorite of mine.  
Each of the 37 bridges over the Seine 
is different and I am sad to report that 
I could probably name less than half of them.

One advantage of the winter months 
is that the night starts much earlier.

Beautiful. I love walking at night, too. I like seeing Tour St. Jacques in the background...nice lighting!

I say forget the names, just enjoy the views and the stroll in the darkness.

Alexa said...

I love your photo—and your glass-half-full attitude toward winter!

Jack said...

Fabulous, Genie. Your nighttime stroll has paid off in big benefits for your viewers.

Christina, I only dream of living in Paris, but I do visit two or three times a year.

Mr. Bird, you are right, but with a blog post, I want you to know exactly the bridge. (a little type-A)

Jeanie, from the side it does look St. Jacques, but that is Notre Dame looking south across the bridge.

The city of lights at its best Genie.
