Quatorze Juillet! - Bastille Day

Military Parade
of Bastille Day

The parade involves around 7,000 soldiers 
(5,000 on foot, the rest are crew members or cavalrymen), 
300 vehicles, 240 horses and more than 80 planes and helicopters.

And, a celebration for me as today makes 
4 years of daily photos on Paris and Beyond
without missing a day!

A special thanks to all of you who follow my blog 
and to Virginia (Paris Through My Lens) 
who helped me "birth this baby" four years ago.

Avenue des Champs Élysées
75008, Paris

This must be quite a spectacle to see Genie. The uniforms topped with red are very striking.

Happy Bastille Day and Happy Blogiversary!
Thanks to you (and your lovely "midwife") for creating this wonderful blog and to you for maintaining it so faithfully. It's given me a daily dose of Paris—and a good friend!

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and for your comments. I hope that there was a celebration and perhaps a few fireworks for you today!

Thank you also for your encouragement to continue posting. By now I have become used to the daily posting and it is good to hear that you enjoy it. Merci beaucoup!
