Pont des Arts Bridge

The Pont des Arts Bridge can be seen in the image below covered in “love-locks“. Sweethearts buy a lock together and place it on the bridge and then throw the key into the River Seine thus symbolizing that their love is unbreakable like the lock.

Notre Dame de Paris

After the recent fire that resulted in the partial distrucion of the roof of the Notre Dame Cathedral I am extremely greatful I was able to see it when I did and I hope that one day it can be fully restored.  Below are three different views of the outside of the cathedral taken I captured back in 2012.
