I love visiting places that hold special memories. While studying on my year abroad my parents and two cousins came to visit and we had an adventure in paris. We thought it would be a good idea to take a picture in the middle of the Champs Élysées. It’s not. As my mom was taking a picture, a huge bus nearly ran us over. You can see the bus in the background of the picture. Stupid, could have been dangerous, but in the end it was funny. Any time I cross the Champs Élysées, I remember that moment and the good times we had.
Here, I was walking back to the hotel after for a work meeting, not even realizing I was going to walk across the Champs Élysées. It was a beautiful summer sunset and I snapped this photo. I like the light and dark. I like the reflection of the light on the street. I like the lights. I like the person walking across the street. I like the Arc d’triomphe so small in the background. I like the fact it looks like a snapshot…it isn’t framed how you normally would. Yet, it works.
