Around Concorde

Place de la Concorde is a huge area. I’m not in that part of Paris too often but got out the other day before rain was expected to take a few photos and explore.

img_1995 I saw these in a store window selling expensive clothing. I wonder if I will ever see someone wearing a pair on the street?

img_2014 I saw a photo something  like this on Instagram and tried it myself by putting my iPhone on the ground and leaning over to take the photo. It’s neat to see the leaves up close I think.

Up Above

Printemps, a department store right next to Galeries Lafayette, has some pretty spectacular views from the top.

It was a gray, rainy day which made it unpleasant out on the roof but I still like seeing the Eiffel Tower, even without blue skies.

Inside the store, in another section, you can have lunch under this fabulous glass dome.
