Our first day and half in Paris were pretty damp, but lovely all the same. Click any of the pictures below to see them bigger.
Everywhere we went in Paris (and we were mostly in the touristy 16th Arrondissement), there were people photographing themselves by the Seine, particularly engaged couples with professional photographers along, especially with the Seine and the Eiffel Tower in the background. This woman was walking with a companion and a photographer and stopped to get photographed with the swan.

Came upon this interesting, fabric-textured ceramic, so I took a shot of it; then pulled back for some context so one could see the wall of the bridge support it was on, then pulled back even more so one can see where that bridge is. I couldn’t find any information on what it was, who its creator was or anything. Beautiful. Click any of the images to see them all enlarged to full size.
