Les Invalides and the Eiffel Tower last night seen from the garden of the Rodin Museum in Paris, France
It’s fashion week in Paris, which actually lasts for nine days. Even if you don’t go to the shows, you see impossibly tall and slender women strolling past the cafes and posters for beautiful clothes, including lingerie, just about everywhere. This one was on the back of a tour bus near Les Invalides this afternoon.
Lonely in Paris: a woman strolling on a stunningly empty Esplanade du Trocadero this morning, looking out on the Eiffel tower and the dome of Les Invalides.
The platform on top of the Tour Montparnasse. The interior of the building is a weird flashback to the Godardian anomie of the 1960s and 1970s. But the views are hard to beat.
