Paris At Three Feet

I always thought it would be interesting to put a camera on the head of a kid as he wandered around Paris so you could get a different view than normal. I also wish I had thought of the title originally. I would have used it to write a guide book for children but I heard it from someone else. I brought two of my grandsons back with us from Switzerland and have been showing them around Paris. As usual, I try not to show there faces.


Jogging on Promenade Plantee with Maurice.


I don’t know why he pulled the hood down over his face but I took the photo anyway.


I took them to Picpus Cemetery since it is in our neighborhood and saw this sweet little note left by a fan of General Lafayette.


Pretending to grafitti.


Taking photos.


Arch de Triomphe.


Pont Alexandre III


Eiffel Tower. We climbed the stairs to the second level.


Looking at the locks on a bridge behind Notre Dame.


Watching a boat on the canal as it goes through the locks.

  1. My, how they’ve grown! My fav is the one looking over the Pont Alexandre III…and looking at the Arch…and taking photos.

  2. I bet you are having the best time with those boys. The striped shorts in the photo where your grandson is taking photos look so Swiss. I bet they are different kinds of tourists than American grandkids would be. Enjoy.

  3. I had to come back to share something. I need a mobility scooter to get around now and it has often occured to me that I am seeing things from my smallest granddaughters height now. She jogs alongside in the super market.
    It can be scary down there with everything looming over your head.
