The Many Faces of French Architecture

Today’s Photography 101 Prompt is architecture.

I love France and there is no shortage of beautiful buildings, statues, and monuments in this wonderful country (not to mention fabulous cuisine–but I digress).Β  As you will see below, I had a difficult time choosing just one photo . . . .

A Parisian staple – Le Tour de Eiffel:

Boy, I guess I could’ve used this for my “Pop of Color” post, huh? You live and you learn.

Various shots of the L’arc de Triomphe:

I would’ve titled this post “Paris” if I didn’t include this shot of Le Chatau de Versailles:




  1. France is one of my favorite places too, but I still only imagine being there. It is on my list. Your photography stokes the fire for me. Thank you πŸ™‚

    • You should absolutely go!! You won’t regret it! Of course, I tell everybody this, but that doesn’t make it any less true πŸ˜‰

  2. I am in love with Europe’s architecture. Quite different than what we have here in Canada I find! The pictures are beautiful <3

    • Thank you! I’ve only been to Toronto, Montreal and Quebec, but I find that Old Quebec City has similar architecture. πŸ™‚ The duck confit is spot on too (but of course, it’s still a very French city)! πŸ˜€

  3. Ah Paris. I love your evening shots! And the colour in the Versailles shot. Beautiful. I arrive in Paris tomorrow night! Very excited!
