Champs Elysee

Le Champs-Élysées

It’s very nearly 10 years since I took this shot, from the ‘Paris Wheel’ in Place du Concorde as part of a sixth form school trip. So this is a fitting time to return to Paris as a ‘grown up’ and actually stay in the city! As per usual, I’ve hundreds of photos to sort though – I think back in 2001 maybe I shot 2 or 3 rolls of 36 exp and lost half of the prints – how times change! I finally made it to the top of the Eiffel Tower, promenaded round the gardens of le Chateau de Versailles with the lovely Ruth and much more. It’s been lovely to try to speak French even if I have lost a lot of the skills. More musings to follow – it’s a fascinating city.
