Love this shot of the A.III Bridge. It is breathtakingly beautiful.
Saw a very pretty girl in the photo.Didn't notice a bridge!
MBenaut: look again, there is someone next to her! ;)Another incredible night shot. That bridge is really something else.The whole area around where this shot was taken is absolutely incredible. Just be sure to bring *very comfortable shoes* when you explore these sights because the miles add up VERY quickly.(Where is everybody? Digesting some turkey, maybe?)
My favourite bridge in Paris!In fact, some years ago, I took a photo from almost the exact same spot: but it isn't nearly as magnificent as this one.Speechless, Eric.
This type of picture is why Paris is considered to be a romantic city. It's amazing how you are able to capture that magical feeling in a picture.I've been looking through your archive and I wondered if there were pictures of the many beautiful parks of Paris?
The play of light and dark enhances the tone of romanticism.
Great shot! This really makes people want to visit Paris!
Wonderful, moody shot. It reminds me of a film noir. And I would love to know what is going on in the mind of that woman. She looks like she is waiting for something...
What a spectacular shot, Eric. I've never seen one quite like it. Makes me want to be there with my honey right now.
i like those lamps on the left side.so beautiful, just like some magic light.great shot about bridge I saw!jingwww.shanghaidailyphoto.com
It's a lovely shot Eric. Structure, warmth, the girl with her wonder. The lights trailing back. The man there, is he with her?"Nothing more to say really."perhaps...
what a wonderful photo eric. the scene is just perfect, two possibly total strangers on a bridge at nighttime..slight mist in the air, beautiful buildings in the background and the beautiful street lamps on. It makes you think what is going through each others head really. could one be looking at the other taking interest in them. who knows but i certainly think this photo would be perfect in which to use the phrase "City Of Love".
EricI hope a trade book publisher here has contacted you about a "coffe table book," These photos should be published.Happy Thanksgiving.
Joli. Since you are in the neighborhood, would you give us a shot of Napoleon's grave for the 2nd of December?...
Victoria, I think she is waiting for something....Eric! They are both probably saying, "come on Eric, that was good enough! It's cold!" lolSo Eric, are you going to make me wonder which of those two is your love? Inquiring minds want to know! Very nice picture of a very impressive bridge...I never took a picture of it while on it because my feet were killing me (blisters). I wasn't very wise in my shoe choice (Tomate).BV, here's a picture of Napoleon's resting place...Napoleon The cities listed around him are battles he won.
This bridge is beautiful day or night. Here's another shot of Eric's that now have as my desktop background. Try it, it looks beautiful blown up large.
I absolutely adore this photo Eric. The mist is nice, the woman waiting for her friend to finish reading the guide book so that he can see what he is missing, the blue lights. Really nice. Thank you.
Look at me....I'm as misty as a kitten up in a treeOk, wrong song for great photo, but made me think of it anyway.Is it cold there?
I'm enjoying the nighttime mist of late also. I have a beautiful view of the Hotel de Ville from across the river Seine and the mist combined with the lights on the building are making the Hotel de Ville absolutely gorgeous. The down side is that the mist is hiding the Sacre Coeur from view. Enjoy the mist while it lasts. I didn't know Paris could have rain lasting more than 5 minutes at a time until this week when we've had constant rain for hours at a time.
Vanessa Paradis waiting for Daniel Auteuil? (La fille sur le pont - 1999)
lovely! looks like a romantic bridge to me with the lights and misty feel. I hope that woman didn't wait long for whoever she was waiting !enjoy your weekend!
If anyone were to doubt the validity of the expression "pretty as a picture", send them over to Eric's blog
Enigmatic, wistful, ethereal. I love this Eric. Thanks Tomate I didn't notice the man at first! I think this lady belongs to Eric, ("can you just tilt your head up please darling towards the sky" said he)otherwise she would have been snuggled, whilst waiting, in to that man if she were with him on a cold night. The lighting is beautiful and has the bonus of being reflected on the damp ground.I just want to be in Paris more and more. Anyone want to do a holiday house swap in the UK? lol.
a ce pont...que de souvenir...
my ukdailyphoto blog does not appear on the lists - how do i put the whole list on my page please and get myself included?
We antipodeans are probably unanimous: Paris is, by far. the most romantic city in the world. But as we can't get there as much as we would like, we are priveliged to be given the key to your city, Eric.Thank you, and we wonder what tomorrow will bring.I still didn't see a bloke on that pont, but the sheila was grouse. (Sorry Tomate, you can look for blokes!)Also, we DO have pidgeons AND 2CV's in Oz, so we are rooooly French.Alas, we don't have Ségolène Royal.You will have her or M. Sarkozy in 2007.Président de la République; crikey!
Lynn, you had better go to Paris and stand on the Pont Alexandre III on such an enigmatic, wistful and ethereal night, and I guarantee that you would fall in love with something.It may be him, it may be Paris, it may be love itself.It is unavoidable.It is Paris.It is necessary.It is impetuous.It's demanding, it's under your skin .It's a song and it plays incessantly.There's no escape.You're gone baby, it's written all over your face.
Beautiful words M. Benault once again. I'm halfway to the airport, laptop in taxi, camera in hand, Paris in my mind and love in my heart.
Je vous ai dit ainsi.Vivre l'amourMais que diriez-vous de l'autre moitié ?
Wonderful atmospheric shot!
M. Benaut: Hope I'm translating correctly, I told you thus, live for love, but what do you tell of the other half? Goodness, I've forgotten so much french!Well, i didn't make the other half sadly. There i was in the taxi, all ready for Paris and work called. Such is my life! Please correct me if i am wrong.
Bonsoir!You have really great shots from Pairs, great job. I'm coming to Paris next summer, and I'm so excited about it! Can't wait :)
Oooh Eric! Like everyone else I simply adore this shot. It makes me want to go snuggle with my honey. In fact, I think I shall. Later, guys!
Eric, this is soooooo romantic, wonderful shot!
Me too, Soosha, I've suggested to my man that we take a break to Paris so we can see that gorgeous bridge and other places for ourselves! Won't be til next year now though.. paris in the spring perhaps! Eric is achieving what he set out to do perfectly isn't he; promoting his beloved Paris. We all want to be there! Well done Eric.
I'm a little late, but I left a link to some music sound bites of Michel Jonasz in the photo comments below if anyone's interested.
Inquiring minds still want to know!
Of course we're interested, Michael. You're always ever so resourceful.
Michael, I clicked on the Listen link on your last comment of Jonasz but I just got an amazon thingey. I hope I like him because I ordered a cd from Amazon of his most beautiful songs ( supposedly his most beautiful??)
your favorite bridge as you always say... has really nice atmosphere in your picture. love it.
Me too, Johnny, just thought it was my usual techno hopelessness!
It is early morning here and I have just awoken from a nightmare, which I intend to banish from my mind by revisiting - and reflecting on - this photograph.What strikes me today is the enormity of everything: except, of course, the young man and woman, who are dwarfed by the colossal lamps of the Alexandre III bridge, the gleaming Invalides dome (which we know to be huge), and the misty vastness of the night sky. However, the grandeur of it all doesn’t diminish the everyday gestures - or the casual intimacy - of this anonymous couple. Instead, it amplifies them, such that her fascination with the moment and his apparent disinterest (yes, I’m assuming much more than I should) take on operatic proportions. This probably accounts for (but doesn’t excuse) my insertion of a narrative element into this image - which, in fact, tells us nothing at all about the interior lives of our two “lovers”. All we really have is a mystery, which, at one end of the scale, is as ephemeral as a gaze and, at the other end, as eternal as the cosmos. What links these two poles, and creates a continuum of emotion that extends far beyond the confines of the frame, are the dramatic perspective lines formed by the glow of lights and the glistening structure of the bridge. All of which converge on an unknown woman who, at least for as long as we are looking at this photograph, is the vessel of our own dreams and fantasies.Love may be in the air, but is it hers or ours we are feeling? I suspect that, as in the case of all great romantic images, it is a combination of both.
I'm really happy you all appreciated this photo cause, like Michelle said I keep telling everybody that this is my favorte bridge in Paris!And I am not the only one apparently...I'm also glad this couple - that I don't know at all (they must be tourists) appear on the pic, it adds a special flavour to it.
Ah, so we were all wrong then in that you don't know them! They certainly looked like they were waiting for you Eric! Our romantic minds were working overtime, spurred on by your misty-eyed lens! I bet this couple must be pleased to be on here, I wonder if they even know yet? How amused they would be at all the speculation they provoked. Hope they leave a message!
Eric, Who's Michelle? Are you referring to Michael?
No Susan, see Michelle's comment which is 5 comments above you.
Hold on there Louis, I know this photograph. It's a little more down to earth than that. He has stood into the shadows so that he can use the calculator function on his mobile phone to work out 'exactly' how much their evening meal has cost in English Pounds and that look of 'enchantment' on her face is really "We are in the city of Romance, what does it matter HOW MUCH it cost?"
Very funny Dermo! You must know us well.
How could I have got it so wrong, Dermo? That'll teach me to write first and ask questions later.
Love it Dermo! Absolutely right, must be!
C'est moi aussi mon pont préféré de ParisMais l'histoire ne dit-elle pas qui est "la belle au pont" ?
She appears to be looking up at the figure on the column at the beginning of the bridge, and he reading to her about it from the walking tour book. Eric, this photo has an immediacy about it. We are right there with you this night, tired after the party in the moist night air!-Kim
The bridge is beautiful.
Love the one-point perspective in this shot Eric! And the lights...and the dome (HEY! OUR HOTEL WAS RIGHT BY THERE!)...and the green traffic lights...and the mist...and the couple...guess I love darn near EVERYTHING! LOL! ;-)
simplesmente perfeito!!!(just perfect!!!)
This photo is GORGEOUS. One of the best of Pont Alexandre III I've ever seen. I have taken 100's myself and none this DRAMATIC. EXCELLENT. Vicki Hofstetter, "Oui, Madame!"
always a pleasure+++++
