Fountain of the Concorde

June 23, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Hey there !

It's been a little while since my last post, and that's because I've just spent the better half of a month in Paris and just got back a few days ago. I was extremely busy over there trying to take it all in and balance my time to fit everything in that I had wanted to do, and because of that here I am back home with about 3,500 images to sort through *sigh*

I've got a bit of work to do to get back in the swing of things and play catch up, and also to kick this little cold I caught somewhere on the way back.


So to the point, I had an idea to try to change the style of my blog, even though I've just started it, I'm thinking of instead of just waiting to recant a whole story once a week with many photos, I'd try to do a single photo everyday with it's own story. I'm not sure if it'll turn out the way I'd like but the only way to find out is to give it a shot ! Though I would still like to include more in-depth posts now and again of more noteworthy adventures or experiences (such as Paris) but they will be more at random as I can foresee at this point. If you follow along I'd like to hear your input of which format you like better, or if you have any other ideas as well ! So now, onto to the daily photo !

 

A beautiful fountain at Place de la Concorde in Paris, France.NVS_9915

 

This is one of the fountains at Place de la Concorde in Paris, France. This was one of my first few days in Paris and I had been all around the city that day jumping the metro, till I decided to end my day at le Arc de Triomphe for the sunset, which is just down the Champs Elysees from Place de la Concorde. This is where I realized I was about 3 hours too early, as in the summer months the sun does not set until about 10:00PM, and the lights don't come on till roughly 10:35PM, which was not happy news for me as I had lots of plans for the night, and very few hours of it. I also learned this trip that here, Place de la Concorde, formerly known as Place de la Revolution, was where Marie Antoinette was beheaded publicly in 1793. It's rather amazing when you learn these things of these places that you go to and think nothing of it, then you learn what happened where you stand right now is one of the most famous acts of history, especially if you allow the thought to sink in your mind.
