A Leaf at the Feet of the Arc de Triomphe

Standing in the Streets of Paris

For some reason, French drivers don’t seem a bit phased to find a number of foreign tourists standing in the middle of their Boulevards taking photos of their monuments. Even, it seems, if those same tourists are photographing at night. I took a number of photographs on the streets surrounding the Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile, namely I camped out in the middle of the Avenue des Champs-Élysées. Somehow I felt safer with the Parisian drivers than I do with my local Springfield drivers!

This photo is from the side of the Arc where I became fascinated with this leaf that planted itself in my shot. Enjoy!
