Take a Stroll Thru Paris’ Marais & Latin Quarter on a Cold December Day


Take a stroll with me through Paris during a very cold week earlier this December. They were taken on different days in different neighborhoods although I spent most of my time between the Latin Quarter and The Marais for the bulk of the shots I’m publishing here. Take a look at the post I wrote earlier this week about the padlocks attached to Paris bridges to signify love from romantics around the world.

A wonderful little creperie in the Marais. (she was working on a chevre cheese and spinach one when we approached).











Locks on the bridges, meant to seal love from romantics who left them here around the world.

However you look at it, the trend continues as you can see from the shots I captured walking over the bridge, only to fall upon more later on in the day. Most of the bridge shots were taken at or around Pont de L’Archeveche.
