So in my Myth of Paris class we’ve been discussing the difference between the layout of Paris and New York. We’ve talked about how the main difference is that while New York is focused on the skyline and the height, Paris is focused on perspective: being able to see those gorgeous views down the long avenues. I took a very long walk yesterday and tried to capture some of the best views Paris has to offer.
Place de la Concorde:
Eglise de la Madeleine:
Arc de Triomphe on the Champs Elysée:
This isn’t the view down an avenue, but come on, it’s the Eiffel Tower:
These are only some of the amazing views that you can get in Paris, and it’s incredibly impossible to not gawk at the views each time I see them, even though I’ve been to Paris 3 times before and have been living here for the past 4.5 months. This city is so increibly beautiful, it’s not to let my inner tourist come out sometimes ;)
