Paris

I still remember the first time came here with my wonderful partner in life. We stayed at a cute hotel, ate local cuisine at petite restaurants and visited the city with her shiny red purse. I shot with my 400D, edited the shots and lost the pictures in my drive for ever. Sad story.

This time I came for work and I had some small pauses in the middle and had the chance to capture some nice scenery, objects and other details of the city.

Here is my very first one I shot yesterday walking around with Steve in before/after style:

 

Arc De Triomphe - TriumphbogenArc De Triomphe - Triumphbogen"Der Pariser Triumphbogen (frz. Arc de Triomphe) ist ein 1806 bis 1836 errichtetes Denkmal an der Place Charles-de-Gaulle in Paris. Er gehört neben dem Eiffelturm zu den Wahrzeichen der Metropole. Unter dem Bogen liegt das Grabmal des unbekannten Soldaten aus dem Ersten Weltkrieg mit der täglich gewarteten „Ewigen Flamme der Erinnerung“ (frz. Flamme du Souvenir) im Gedenken an die Toten, die nie identifiziert wurden. Das ganze Jahr hindurch finden Kranzniederlegungen und Ehrungen statt, die ihren Höhepunkt in der Parade am 11. November finden, dem Jahrestag des Waffenstillstands zwischen Frankreich und Deutschland im Jahr 1918.Als Fußgänger gelangt man zum Arc de Triomphe nur durch eine Unterführung; der Triumphbogen verfügt über eine Aussichtsplattform."
