Out of the Jurisdiction: Icons of Paris

I have avoided showing the icons of Paris.  My willpower gave out.  Today is the day.


Place des Vosges is almost too beautiful for words.


Everyone shows the Buren columns at Palais Royal.  Me, too.


Notre Dame without crowds?  Yes, from a quiet church garden across the Seine.


(And an evening shot from closer.)


Sacre Coeur from the roof of the Pompidou Center.


The Eiffel Tower.


And, perhaps the most iconic symbol of Paris:  a beautiful woman.  
I came across a model shoot at Palais Royal.

I've enjoyed your photos from Paris, Jack. You have some great images here. I'm always amazed at your ability to find and photograph attractive women :)

Stunning shots Jack. That person with the pink umbrella at Palais Royal makes that shot very special. Fantastic.

Long live the icons of Paris. They are the backdrop for all the other quirky, behind-the-scenes shots of the City of Light. I enjoy them all!

To borrow a phrase, if one is tired of Paris, one is tired of life.

You have made me very very happy Jack. And btw, I photographed a model at the Palais Royal once myself, but yours is just stunning!

I would have been disappointed if you hadn't photographed these marvelous icons. I will NEVER tire of seeing these either in Paris myself or through photos.

Looking at all these pictures beings back so much nostalgie. I wonder if I made the most of the years I spent in Paris. It's fun seeing the city again through your eyes.
