Pretty Paris Pictures : Night Seine

Night Seine Eiffel Tower
Again out on an evening stroll along the Seine, I once more found myself armed with my camera, and free to capture as many shots as my greedy eyes so desired.

Pretty Paris Pictures – Reflections

Rooftop Window January always begins with new resolutions, or renewed goals, for many. I am not always keen on making resolutions, but I do like to reflect on the year that has passed, and the year that has just begun. I like to imagine my plans and goals, and visualize myself meeting them.
