Alexander III Bridge

One of the most ornate and over the top bridges in Paris, Pont Alexander III, is fun to photograph. It had been rainy and gray for a few days in Paris but when the sun came out I decided to get out and do some photographing. As the days are getting shorter and shorter, it pays to get out in the sun when you can.

It looks like the front of a Valentine’s card. There are cherubs all over the bridge.

It’s one of my favorite places for a view of the Eiffel Tower.

It is a favorite place for photographing brides. I saw two couples there in just ten minutes.

  1. Your photos are terrific. The view of the Eiffel Tower from the bridge is spectacular. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I missed a few days of reading your blog and have loved the last three posts. Your grandson is so sweet … your stories so engaging … and, of course, these lovely photos are so … french! I love visiting your blog.

  3. Beautiful bridge, lovely cherubs. I wonder if bridges having photos taken there has some legend behind it.

  4. Bridges, I love the symbolism. *sigh*

    Check my links list at my blog for the relleno recipe…..I marked it for you.

    That photo of the Eifel Tower is really beautiful. Love it.

    We went to the Dixon studio tour just north of Santa Fe this weekend. You would have enjoyed it, I’m sure. Maybe some day you’ll make a stop in New Mexico. That would be fun.
