Paris, Tu Me Manque

I think I need a trip to Paris. I need to just roam the streets, watch the people, savor the food, listen to the music, eat croissant warm from the patisserie, window shop, get lost in a museum, have dinner and Pinot Noir at 11pm.

Naked Trees

For now I'll just daydream and look at my photos from my last two trips there. I love Paris in the winter. It's so romantic and melancholy. Le sigh.

I would have to agree with Namine. I love that picture with the girl and the dog... there's something so melancholic yet so magical about it.
Great job with those pics!
