John and I have a deep affection for cities that have rivers running through them -- think London, Rome, Istanbul, Boston -- and Paris and the Seine are extra special. So accessible! Such vistas!
Here we see Notre Dame cathedral and Pont de la Tournelle in the distance from Pont de Sully just east of Île St-Louis.
The pedestrian Pont St-Louis connecting Île de la Cité and Île St-Louis often features talented buskers like this little jazz combo. They were dressed in US Army fatigues and playing "Cow-Cow Boogie".
Here we're looking from île de la Cité across the Pont d'Arcole at the fanciful architecture of the town hall or Hôtel de Ville as a tour boat passes.
On the other side of Île de la Cité next to Notre Dame we're looking across the Pont au Double at the Port de Montebello and the Left Bank.
I love how the steps lead down to the Seine here on the Port de Montebello.
Farther west, across from the Musée D'Orsay, a lone traveller rests and takes in the view.
I like to think that after her rest she climbed the beautifully designed pedestrian bridge, Pont Solferino and crossed to visit the museum,
or wandered westward along the Tuileries to catch a glimpse of the Pont Alexandre III and the Eiffel Tower. What a magical, ever-changing stream in all seasons, all lights!
