Two Favorite Photos of Paris

Montmartre by night, December 2008

Eiffel Tower is Blue taken from Montmartre, December 2008

Two of my favorite photographs in Paris. I like the image of Montmartre at an angle. Took this as I was walking down the hillside. I love the people standing and looking out over Paris by night with the cobblestones at their feet and a light from a single street lamp. The Eiffel Tower is blue during the Christmas Season. The blue is so deep as to appear almost purple.

Egrets, Roseate Spoonbills, Glossy Ibis

Along the Texas coast there is yet another wildlife sanctuary that is full all winter with migrating birds and some birds that live here year around. The pink ones flying off are the Roseate Spoonbills. They are tucked in with the Egrets and Glossy Ibises. I hope we get to drive through there next week. I'm afraid it suffered greatly during the last hurricane (August 2008) that came in near Beaumont. We were through the area in October, but were not able to visit the Anahuac Refuge.
