Place d'Iena

Yesterday I had to go and see a dentist for a special intervention (nothing really serious, but something that required a special equipment). The office was in the 16th arrondissement (one of the richest arrondissements in Paris, which explains why a lot of doctors' office are located there ;-)) Anyway, on the way back, I passed by the Place d'Iena, a beautiful roundabout in the middle of which you can see the statue of George Washington (by US sculptor Daniel Chester French). In the background you can also see the Guimet museum (in the "tower").


  1. Quite dramatic this time of day, Eric. Excellent shot!

  2. Five years ago my daughter took a job as an Au Pair in Paris. Having never visited the city I was apprehensive about where she would live and her safety etc. Luckily I was able to travel to the city and found her in the 16th with a lovely family. Worries abated! At that time I began following your blog and it became my lifeline to see (literally) what she was experiencing. Photos of weather, current events and even road construction made my connection more tangible. I just wanted you to know how important you blog has been in my life and thank you. It's a bit early but you will be missed.

    1. Kathleen, there are many others who feel exactly the same. :-)

  3. What both Kathleen and Drummond said! (And I especially like the movement in this shot. Well done!)

  4. I agree with Kathleen, Drummond, and Alexa ------
    Your blog has become a part of our lives that we look forward to --- a life-line with Paris.
    Beautiful photo!!!!
