This first photo is from the Montparnasse office building in southern Paris, looking southwest from the 56th floor observation deck, toward Saclay. Hi, Dad.
Walking from the Eiffel Tower to a Metro stop, we came across a memorial area on a bridge over the Seine. I translated this for myself, it essentially honors the French resistance during WWII, and a particular battle against enemy divisions.
Immediately next to this memorial area, we traded cameras with two young Japanese women and took each others' photos. The angle was intentionally artistic.
