From an afternoon in Paris in September 2012.
A few of my friends are visiting Paris at the moment … and I’m itching to get back one day for a proper visit. This is a view of the Place du Trocadéro, foreground, with the skyscrapers of La Défense off in the distance as they appeared in late 2012. If I recall correctly, this view is from the Eiffel Tower.
The word “Paris” typically evokes images of wide boulevards lined with historic stone buildings. Shatter that stereotype by turning your gaze to the city’s business district, La Défense. There, you’ll find a lovely (and lively) sandbox for modern architecture and design. Here are a few images of the neighbourhood from my visit to the French capital in September 2012.
