pics of new year's day 2013 run through central Paris
Tuesday, January 01, 2013
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.
