I'm back in NYC and the daily grind
but still dreaming of this—and, sorry, but
I don't seem to have the right camera (or the skills)
to be able to capture just how gorgeous it is.

[This is part of my world—when I'm very lucky.
To see more of the world, go here.]


  1. This looks pretty magical to me Alexa!

  2. Glad you're back safely and on time! La dame de fer (la vraie, la seule, pas Mrs Tatcher) me semble être dans toute sa spendeur sur ta photo et tout à fait digne de ton Capitaine !!!!

  3. Your skills look mighty fine to me, Alexa. Isn't she pretty... {understatement of the day}.

    Glad you're back in NYC safe and sound, with sweet Paris dreams fresh in your head.

  4. When the photo is enlarged I feel as if I could step right into it. Magnificient photo!

  5. Thanks, guys! I really wasn't fishing for compliments—you kind of had to be there to know what I mean (she begins to sparkle and the whole crowd gathered there just lets out a collective gasp), and I wish you all could have been!

  6. Alexa, I was in Paris and saw the Eiffel Tower at various times of the day and night in person. To say your capture is magnificent in this evening shot is not overstating it. You really found the reflections and the magic. Thanks for sharing this part of your journey and bringing back the nice memories!

  7. I think you did a superb job of capturing her. I fail miserably but don't care cause I just love her.


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
