Paris: All The Kings Horses

A Child's View of Paris

Travel gives us the ability to look at the world with fresh eyes.. A child's view. No nine to five or daily duties to wear us down, we take in the world with childish enthusiasm. So with this is mind, here are some 'views' of Paris from my recent trip. I do believe my quirky 'Louis' may have influenced me just a little.

Thanks for the kind words on the last post..
I hope you are not tiring of my Europe posts?  I may be back home but my heart is still there.

Have A Wonderful Weekend

Can't believe what you did with the photos! Perfect.
Well the weather must be getting warm where you are, because the 100+ days seem to be leaving here. Thank goodness.
Have a nice weekend, and keep the photos coming!

Pretty cool effect Julie. Love the extra double chins on the King...haha
Must be all the rich foods.

I imagine I would feel a bit child like too in Paris....since it seems I was a child the last time I went.

Happy dreaming of a happier time.
