Sunset on Pont des Arts


No need to be a mind reader to know that you will probably love this photo ;-) It's actually another shot I took during the picnic - which, just for the records took place between the Pont Neuf and the Pont des Arts (precisely in this photo), a pedestrian bridge that was built at the beginning of the 19th century. I took it at 9 pm, just when the sun was going to bed...

  6. Glorious and dreamy photo, Eric. I just watched the Video of the Picnic on Vimeo and really enjoyed it! Anderson Cooper better watch out, you performed some great interviews as well! Thanks a million for all you do. 8^)

  7. Mon Dieu—the bridge, the sunset, the ET! This is one for the 2012 calendar, for sure. Seriously—wow!

  8. Oh gosh, if I weren't already jealous enough, now this! I can't believe you all got this sky thrown in for good measure! I still have an ear to ear grin from watching all the so, so happy people on the terrific video -- seeing familiar faces and meeting all the folks from so many countries whom I'd never met before. Thank you so much for all the work it took to put it together, Eric. And thanks, Michael, for helping Eric have something to take a video of!!Paris - and you - just make us all so happy!

  12. Not that a single other enticement was needed to make me wish to be at the PDP picnic ... but ahhhhh ... How exquisite this view is! What could make it better? Enjoying it with my friends from PDP. Well, I'm sure we're all enjoying it virtually!

  13. Is it my imagination, or is the ET sinking a little bit?

  14. Pont des Arts is not historic or beautiful like the other bridges in Paris. It is less crowded, absolutely free, and perfect for a picnic dinner, for viewing the sunset. The Pont Des Arts at sunset is one of the most romantic places in Paris.

  15. @Tomate (and Sandy) and many others who already asked me "@Eric, we need a LIKE button on these posts ! ;"

    Your wish is my command. I just installed it (actually I just took the time to look for a way to do it!)

  16. If I knew how to say I love this photo in 20 different languages it would still not sufficiently say how much I love this photo!

  17. Hah, I think I was next to you when you took this and you were moaning that you'd only taken this shot about a thousand times before! It's a hard life... ;-Sab

  27. Oh come on! I cannot take it any more! It's one thing to make us all wish to have been at the PDP Picnic, but it's another to make our mouths drop open in front of co-workers!! Haha....one year my wife and I will be with you, as her birthday is May 11 and I have long wanted to make our fall trip to Paris into a Spring trip so she can see it in May, a great time to be in love, and in the City of Lights..

  28. Eric, the best scenes from the Seine are as you captured here... when the day is ending, or even when the day is beginning. Let's bottle these colors and we can make a fortune!!

  31. Pont des Arts bridge at sunset. This bridge is literally covered with thousands of locks left by lovers. In summertime nothing beats watching the sunset on the Pont des Arts.

  37. Admirer le coucher du soleil avec son amoureux/se dans son dos doit surement être ce qu'il y a de plus beau, sur le Pont des arts, ou ailleurs. Ca doit être grisant, sans faiblesse, ça doit rendre très fort. Ca doit être aussi beau que sur la photo. Je me demande si je vivrai ça un jour ?
    Pourrai-je m'en passer? Souvent je pense que oui, parfois je pense que ceux qui ne passent pas à côté de ça ont de la chance. Parfois je pense que non, sans trop y croire. C'est fragile le sentiment amoureux. On prend l'habitude de s'en passer en fait jusqu'au moment où on pose les yeux sur une photo comme ça. Pas vrai?

  38. You are right. Love it! ;)
