Paris at night. The lights of the Eiffel Tower reflected in the Seine.
It is November 14, 2015. Yesterday, there was a terrorist attack in Paris and there are many casualties.

I love Paris, the city and the people, and I feel their pain. The artist's muse and I have had many happy times there.

These are some of my pictures from Paris. Most are from long ago. I hope that I have captured some of the essence of this wonderful place.
