It's back!


I know this photo probably reminds you of one you saw last year and the year before and probably the year before! For yes, like every December the big Ferris wheel has returned to the Place de la Concorde. I must say I've found it hard to look for a new angle, so I chose to keep the Obelisk in the picture. Not extraordinary I agree, but good enough to feel the Christmas spirit ;-) As you can see, the snow is already gone (until next week it seems...).

  3. And let me be the next to say that I actually look forward to this each year. It wouldn't be Christmas without the big lit-up Ferris wheel!

  5. Eric, I never could tire of Paris or of your perspective on it.

    I like the way the bright light from the ferris wheel illuminates the cobblestone ... I can almost feel myself strolling in Paris on this winter evening. Yet again, I thank you.

  6. Yeah, it's really pretty every year.

    I am amazed that all the snow is gone. We are just getting some tonight: they say maybe 12 inches overnight. I'm glad I have enough food (and wine) in the house!

  7. Great! It specially reminds me of your 21/01/2010 picture. Well I'm saying it without checking before, don't know why. Few things really change in a year within the Parisian environment but many more change in a year in our lives, don't they? Eric, I recently watched you in an interesting video relating to Le web 10. I was happy to see again! That's obvious you lost weight. Not that I ever thought you had to but you clearly did it and that's remarkable. Congrats. I really wish I could do that too! Just melting like the snow... lol!

  8. Fiore nailed it. I am not one to talk but what might be going on under that less-than-before-filled-out turtleneck?

    So what do I appreciate most? Utter originality or reminders of the persistence of the past? Hmm. I am here, aren’t I?

  9. I'm happy to look at this scene as often as you're happy to show it, Eric!

  10. The light reflected on the floor has a sad touch.

  11. LOL Tall Gary!!!!
    That's not far from what I think ;-)
    Thanks for the link. Isn't it lovely for you to hear Eric speaking in French ?! :) I'm more used to hearing him speaking French than you of course. He's so at his ease in both language!

  12. Hi Eric, it's an interesting story and I did a short article on la Grande Roue de Paris last week, funnily enough. I hadn't realised that it was portable and has travelled all over the world!

  14. For the first time in a long time I won't be in Paris for the holidays. We were in Paris in October and I felt a bit disoriented without the wheel! Happy to see it up.
