Bird's-eye view of the arch....


Thank you so much for your nice wishes yesterday ;-) Like last year I don't resist showing you an image that I grabbed from the television and that you will rarely see (it is normally forbidden to fly over Paris). The Arc de Triomphe in the middle of La Place de l'Etoile from the sky... I love it. Did you notice the red trucks? They belong to the firemen brigades that marched, like I was telling you yesterday.

  2. AAAAAHHHHH I missed the fireworks!! Talking on the phone for an hour trying to help a landowner, I forgot about the time. Rats. I hope the fireworks were great. I love this photo of l'Etoile.

  3. No wonder I get lost in the Metro at L'Etoile...look at how many sortie's there are to choose from.

    But what a VIEW!

  4. Jeff -- LOL -- I love to say "Rats!" (and sometimes Jeepers!) but I thought I was the only one who did it anymore.

    Happy Belated July 14th to one and all. This is just an awesome photo! It must be super rare that they close down L'Etoile. Wish I could have seen that.

  6. Wow, beautiful aerial shot and ... happy belated firemen anniversary and happy French 14th of July!!! I'm happy to share this with you.
    I finally managed to catch the second half of the fireworks, from the Trocadero area, and yes... it was simply gorgeous!!! "Plein les yeux", as we say in French. Ok, one can think, that's another fireworks but still it is an unique and free splendid show. Without the insistance of my daughter, I would probably not have made it! But happy I did! The spontaneity of children is charming as well as their resistance against any tiredness! LOL!

  7. An idea: Hold the PDP picnic on Bastille Day, at a designated spot at Champs du Mars park...every year. No more headache for Eric, trying to decide which day of which month...and those of us who live far, far away could plan ahead! I know that it's high season for travel, but look what we're missing people! And speaking of missing...where was Carla Bruni?

  16. I don't believe all this TV image stuff. Come clean mild mannered reporter Eric Tenin, admit it, you are Superman and you can fly.

  17. @Drummond. Damned. I got busted!

  18. I second Christie's sentiment.And to think that I missed the big event by two days,but I couldn't stay.Next year...and the PDP picnic would be a definite draw.

    Merci beaucoup

  20. Gorgeous shot! I wore my french Bastille day t-shirt at work yesterday and that was the extent of the celebration.
    (One of the actors I was making up really loves "daft punk". I have to check that group out as I have never heard of them).
    Joyeuse fête nationale Eric, en retard.

  24. As to the missing First Lady in Parisforme's comment: I just read that France is having a baby soon. An heir to the throne. Oh, wait, you don't do that anymore, do you? Well, with the history of her modeling, sexy photos, etc., might the phrase be "Let them eat cheesecake?"

  30. Some people think that IVF treatment is best option no doubt it is best and effective but also expensive while the tubal reversal cost is cheaper and effective than the IVF treatment. So i always suggest tubal reversal surgery to get pregnant.
