As I wrap up my Paris in July posts, it seems fitting to leave the City of Light when the light is the most remarkable -- in the twilight and evening.
My small camera can't do justice to the setting sun, when life quiets down just a little bit and seems all the more tranquil.
Well, not everywhere is it tranquil!
Take the metro to Montmartre and check out the activity by the Moulin Rouge.
I'm quite sure the show inside couldn't match the lights and people outside!
Hop on that Metro again...
...and head down toward the most famous sight in Paris!
When viewed from Champs des Mars in late April, the light falls in a perfect sunset position.
And then the lights begin to sparkle!
We'll dine at Verjus, a lovely restaurant on Rue du Richelieu, with a view of the Theatre Palais Royal right outside our window.
And then bright city lights.
We'll stop in the courtyard of the Louvre where we admire the architecture...
...and the famous I.M. Pei pyramid.
Perhaps it's time for a snack! We'll cross the Pont des Arts, where Rick and I left a love lock the day before...
We'll make a stop by Notre Dame at night.
And from a distance, note Tour St. Jacques.
And soon, we'll have a better view.
The Chatelet theatre is lit as brightly from the outside as in, as we cross the Seine again.
Boats amble down the river, the bateau mouches taking the evening dinner cruise.
The feet are tired and it is time to call it a day. But oh, what a day!
Good night, Paris. And thanks to all the Paris in July posters who have taken me back to the City of Light.
