Another dawn photo


Yes, I know, it's another of these dawn photos, but I can't help it, when it's sunny in the morning and that I pass by the river banks: I have to stop and take a photo;). I'm not 100% sure what this bridge is - yes you can boo me! -but I'm pretty sure it's Le Pont Neuf. I also realized today I forgot to wish my American visitors a happy Thanksgiving, so let me do it tonight... Have a nice sunny Friday (ours won't be that sunny...)

  1. Beautiful, Eric. You could produce a small book entitled Paris at Dawn with all these. I love the romance of it all.

  3. Congrats Lynn GF again! How great!
    Eric, I love sunrise and sunset pictures, you can never post to many. No matter how many you post they are all so beautiful in their own unique way. Thanks for all the lovely pictures.

  6. Marvelous! It is nearly time for me to take the turkey out of the oven and begin the flurry of activities necessary to get Thanksgiving dinner on the table. Thank you for the respite this beautiful shot gave me, Eric, and also thanks for the TDay wishes.

  7. Tut tut, Eric! ... Yes, it's the Pont Neuf.

    Now go out and hire 'Les Amants du Pont-Neuf' (d. Leos Carax, 1991), to atone for your sin. (lol)

  11. Happy Thanksgiving to you too Eric (not that we are celebrating that down under mind you).
    I love your dawn photo and the little boat between the bridges too. Have a happy weekend.

  13. Even though the season is past its peak here in Japan it's nice to see Paris coming close to outdoing it all with a few copper flakes of autumn color scintillating the surface of the Seine.

  15. Eric,
    What a beautiful picture. I love the close up of the bridge and then the buildings in the back ground. I May have to change my screen saver to this photo - currently I have your last sunrise over the seine!

    Really nice photo...In one hour, we'll see the dawn here, in Paris. God dam it, I've to go to bed!!

  18. Merci for your good wishes for la fête de l’Action de grâce! It was a bit different for me this year, but a very nice day nonetheless! At least we had turkey..LOL!!

    Le Pont Neuf..isn't that the suicide bridge?? A lovely shot of a lovely bridge nonetheless!

  19. That is a beautiful pic.

    I haven't seen too many dawn pics, so guess I am happy to see this.

    I have walked one morning along the Seine and it was beautiful.

  20. Beautiful photo, Eric - you can't take too many of these for me either. I love the four sentinels standing guard as the woman makes her solitary way across to the other side.

  22. Thanks Gramma. I think I'll have nine miniature bridges hanging from my crown, each with a little diamond in it (of course. One has to have diamonds, darling).

  23. When I saw this picture I first thought of Pont Neuf. So I guess this is it.

    Beautiful..

  24. Oh! So beautiful. I'm in need of a morning with a perfect moment like that right about now. Hope everyone who celebrates it had a happy Thanksgiving and that you're not still too stuffed to go to work today!

  25. Stunning shot,Eric. Early morning photograph has a softness to it, doesn't it - so well illustrated by this lovely photograph. I don't care which bridge is it! It's beautiful.

  26. I am such a sucker for pictures of bridges... and this one makes me go...OMG!

    Eric, don't you just love when people know more about your own place then yourself! lol

    Duchess Lynn, keep going, you might catch up with Alexa on the race for the GF crown!

  27. I'm glad I found almost the same picture to show you how Christo and Jeanne-Claude wrapped it in 1985. I love their work.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Nice one Guille... almost as good as Eric's! ;)

  29. I have a picture of me on the bridge when it was wrapped in Christo's cloth! I was vacationing at the time. Little did I know what my future held in terms of visiting Paris .

  30. The "Christo Wrap" is lovely. Thanks for the link, Guille. And thanks for the holiday wishes, M. PDP. This photo proves, once again, tu es le roi du soleil. (And Guille seems to be la reine du la nuit!)

    Oo! Must run. Meeting people downtown. Au revoir, a bientot mes amis.

  33. I like the solitary walker crisply shown in the golden mist, just opposite from your point of view. Are you on a bridge as well?
