in 2011 one of my goals for 2012 was to take regular monthly pictures of my run, to watch the seasons pass. but i never had a phone or camera til October, then i had to learn to use the hand-me-down iPhone. and so for today's run, i started figuring it out. here are a few (a lot of) pictures. Because today is a holiday, the Pompidou expressway that runs along the Seine on the Right Bank was closed for traffic (as it generally is on Sundays). Because of this (and because i needed to pass the post office to mail some checks and check if a couple of stores were open), i adapted my route somewhat. let's start with a picture of the route:
once i got to the highway, i headed west just to pont neuf and then back east to Sully Morland. here is what it looked like:
then i crossed the Sully Morland bridge to run heading west, with a view of the splendid apse of Notre Dame, unblocked by foliage in the winter. this view is probably a large part of why I run.
and then on around towards City Hall
so now, when my status says lovely, or beautiful light, or Notre Dame ... you will know what I mean.
