Iconic Paris

The Seine, the views from its bridges, rive gauche, rive droite, the Louvre, the Eiffel tower ... these must be amongst Paris's best known and most photographed images. Overworked and clichéd for sure, but somehow still impossibly photogenic in every season and type of weather. Here, in autumn, from my last visit there.

View of the Eiffel tower from the roof terrace restaurant Les Ombres at Quai Branly museum and, below, crossing the river, looking forward to the Palais de Tokyo and Paris Museum of Modern Art  - and back to the tower, silhouetted by a sunburst.


  1. Karen, it's been a pleasure to linger over these Parisian iconic views. Each one improves with the years, always inviting us to return to a city filled with beauty.

    Your photography is amazing! xo

  2. I now want to go there immediately!
    Such splendid photos, Karen.

  3. Beautiful! What a lovely city.

  4. Those stairs down to the river always make me smile. I'm reminded of the ABBA music talking about walks along the Seine, laughing in the rain, morning croissants, living for the day, worries far away. Always beautiful.

  5. Great photos, as always. And even greater memories evoked ---
