Paris is the most wonderful city on earth, in spite of that heap of junk known as the Centre Pompidou which is totally out of place in that location.
Very good photos.

I am very perplexed by this pic. It seems to be taken from Rue de Rivoli. I think it's the Louvre on the left and I see what appears to be the Place de la Concorde (Hotel de Crillon). But I am confirming on Street View in Google Maps that the Louvre does not reach the Place de la Concorde because that should be the grounds of the Tuileries Gardens. And on top of all of this, La Defense in the background appears too close. Can anyone help me understand where this pic was taken? (Nice pics of Paris, btw, as well as your pics of Frankfurt. I will consider taking high-speed rail to Frankfurt from Paris next time I am in Paris.)

It was most likely taken from Rue de Rivoli with a big zoom, hence the compressed perspective.

For all the talk of its springtime, London is truly a definite city. In the winter months season and fall, when vacationer crowd are rare, the town's bars still hum and the roads throng with residents — well-dressed, portfolio-armed and back to work, rejuvenated from their own summer goes out. Running on equivalent parts pleasure and charm, this daily London — found in roads bars or in the bookstalls coating the Seine — is similarly interesting as any of the town's huge typical monuments.
