Some perceptive people have already noticed and wondered, where’s Day 8?

I can’t say for sure, I do have a few days missing in the sequence of images saved, but I do know we were still there 🙂 and “probably” just didn’t go out, expect for maybe a bite or groceries, that day.

And, we were either very tired, or the weather got really yuk.

Plus, I guess the same sorta thing happened to Day 10!

But here we are, in Day 9 in Paris!

Originally, that day, we were headed to the Visitor’s Center at the Pyramids location to get a discount book of bus tickets, so we could travel the city more at will. We got taken off the bus (all the passengers on it) because of street closures due to a protest! A little unsure, we walked and found the visitor center, and were told we had to go to another location for our discount tickets, because it was “off-season.”

It didn’t take long for us to decide, that would have to wait for another day. 😉

The Tuileries turned out to be but a short walk away.

Which turned into a nice long walk in the park. Which took us to the Orangerie, where Monet’s huge water lily paintings are. And to the Place de Concorde, and more great views of the Eiffel Tower. Day 7 in this series has our first images of that famous icon, and our trip there.

All in all, we knew this would be way too much for one morning.

This would indeed be an all-day’er.

At this vantage point..we have arrived at the low wall fronting this smaller museum, filled with Monet’s huge panels of waterlilies plus a nice array of selected impressionist work.

To the left, along the river, is the Tuileries Palace road, one-way, heading east. The Place de Concorde, home to the guillotine during the French Revolution, is to the right.

Visible above the tree line, crowned with a needle, is the Eiffel Tower.

That famous Paris icon appeared almost everywhere.

End of Sample



Though we’ve no pictures for Day 10, Sheila and I resumed our walking exploration of Paris on Day 11, with a trip to the Musee D’Orsay!

  1. very cool images adan – you so captured the atmosphere and i can def. feel the feel of the pics if that makes sense…ah…paris is wonderful – even when it’s rainy – the metro pic is very cool as well


  2. oh i love that metropolitan picture…and the picture of the eifel tower from pont de concorde….that you captured it from a distance allowing us to see life around it…very cool perspective…the peace you felt as well…ah, i would probably be jacked out of my gord excited…haha…nice


    • thanks brian! yeah there was this dual thing going on, excitement & the peacefulness, it was very strange, i guess the latter i wasn’t expecting so much, as i remember i was excited trying to capture some of this before the light changed – to be doing daily life all around this vistas and imagery and history, amazing 😉
