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.
