So, we went to France in August. I've finally finished all the various fragments of yak-shaving necessary to get my pictures processed and online. After the final cull, there were 215 pictures left. I'm going to post my favorites from that here in several small batches over the next week or two, behind LJ-cuts.

For now, I'm just posting the highlights from the final cull of my pictures from August 18. [livejournal.com profile] coraline was quite the photojournalist on this trip; for the most part, I only took pictures when I saw something that especially spoke to me.

The Arc de Triomphe is so much bigger, and so much more fastidiously detailed, than I had ever guessed:

Later that day we went up to Sacré Coeur. On the way up, we passed a house with an owl-handled door and an owl statue above that:

And then, just as we crested the top, [livejournal.com profile] coraline kicked into high gear:

The Moulin Rouge:

At the end of a very long day, the intricate detail on the Eiffel Tower was a pleasant reward for both my engineer-brain and my artist-brain:

For the completist, the obsessive, the eager, and the doomed, you can go see the full set.

I've been through Paris (airport to train, car to airport) but that's it. I want to see it more, now.

These are all beautiful, but that sixth one? Le gasp! It's absolutely stunning.

I love the one with the light-artifacts, and the one of the arch of the Eiffel Tower. Love the high contrast in those last two, that they're almost monochromatic.
