Day 1 Pix:: St. Germain, Quais, Hotel deVille, Notre Dame

I've made my first attempt at a Flickr collection, showing pictures from Day 1 of my trip (May 4, 2013).

(And please, no further lock flames. I get it. Thanks!)

LOVE your pictures and thanks for posting them. I especially like the offbeat ones...the mannequins, the kids running, the plastic bags, the jumble of Eiffel towers. Looking forward to more if you decide to continue adding ones for subsequent days. You have a good eye.

(What did you use for a camera?)

Glad you all enjoyed them -- I certainly had fun taking them.

Cindy B, some of them are just iPhone pictures, but most were taken with a Nikon D5000 DSLR that has lots of features and settings, exactly NONE of which I used. Someday maybe I'll get less lazy and start tweaking the aperture or shutter speed, but these were all strictly taken on the "auto" setting. Sometimes I switch to a zoom lens, and sometimes I crop after the fact, but there's nothing fancy going on here.

Paris is so gorgeous ... it's kind of an easy mark, picturewise. It's a large part of why I enjoyed my visit so much -- there was something beautiful or interesting to look at everywhere I turned.

I do plan to post some more, but it takes me a while to edit them down to a reasonable number so I'll be doing it piecemeal.

Aloha from Kaua'i!

My favorites were the velib shots, the jumble of Eiffel Tower souvenirs, and the rooftops of Paris.....

And of course, the green plastic rubbish bags.....they are truly a part of Paris that speaks to me also!

Thank you for sharing!

Straj: Ah... the phone ... thanks for all your help with that before. Bottom line is that I just used it for texting and VERY light web stuff and it was fine. I'll try to reply in more detail on the original thread.

joan1: Thanks ... Still digging my way through Day 2. I took too many!
