Follow me on: flickr - 500px - twitter One of the many locations that makes Paris so adorable. I spent four days there and it was really hard to decide where to spend the sunrises and sunsets because there are so many places to pick from. It was clear from the beginning though that I would stand on Pont de la Tournelle to enjoy this view with a glass of red wine in my hand. This shot was taken on the first night and I forgot the red wine. I fixed that for the following sunsets though. And actually also for a lot of midday and afternoon shots... :-) IMG_0392Got around to try my idea for the silhouettes I shot on tuesday today.

If we had enough luck and good weather conditions the photo already nice but I'm sure it is also contains a lot of possibilities.
