Quatorze juillet et l'anniversaire de mon blog!



Quatorze juillet


This shot was taken in 2008 on a two-week
solo trip to Paris.  I waited for what seemed hours against
the barricades on Champs-Élysées for the procession.  
The parade was fabulous but the preparations
were even better.


It is not a coincidence that I chose this date
for the beginning of my blog six years ago.
Virginia Jones (Paris Through My Lens) guided my 
entrance to blogging and I will be forever grateful for
her help and lasting friendship.


Thank you all for your support
and comments over the past six years.

How wonderful to celebrate the blog anniversaire along with the Bastille celebrations! We will see it in Portugal on TV, but even there it is great to watch!
We will keep coming to see the wonderful photos of a city we love! Thanks!

Congratulations! How I love your blog and am so glad you are still here. And am awe struck that you post daily! I went solo to France in 2009, an amazing experience!
