Well here I am in Paris again. On the way to a dinner appointment I had a short hour to spare and Tour Montparnasse was right on my way. So for the first time since coming to Paris – which by now must have been over 30 times – I made it up to the observation deck of the Tour Montparnasse. The ride up costed 14.50€ and was quick and easy as there were hardly any tourists. The day had seen lots of rain and the skies didn’t look all too promising. But seeing that the cloud cover was opening with some fresh wind coming in and knowing I only had this one opportunity I had to take the chance.
Tour Montparnasse is the only pale with a perfect city view that allows tripods to be taken along. Too bad I didn’t have one with me! The observation deck has window panes all around and in intervals there are perfect slots in the glass made for undisturbed photography. Thanks Tour Montparnasse responsible for being so considerate to photographers!
The dinner I had to attend too place on a boat – a fun CanCan night on the Seine with a good meal – which left from across the Seine of Gare d’Austerlitz. I found myself right across Les Docks – Cité de la Mode et du Design (the wird design is not the French spelling but I believe that is what it is called). I just had to take a quick shot of this green snake as well.
Now enjoy and get in the classy mood of stylish Paris!
