City of Lights


While at lunch yesterday I caught this light shining through my glass. I loved how it illuminated the table and the book I just bought. Funny it was shining on a book about Paris, the city of lights.

Very cool observation, randy, about the juxtaposition of light and the book. I have already written down the title and will try to get it. I have an entire shelf of books: memoirs and essays mostly, about Paris. Love that city!!

And is that ice I see along the bottom of the window? Looks cold and maybe a cup of coffee would have felt nice, but not made such a lovely picture.

Great lighting and subject matter here! I hope the book is good. =)

Oh, I think I might have put the wrong postage on that snow I sent. Maybe that's why it only got to the Midwest. Ah, maybe next time.

That is a very evocative photo, Randy. I think you have sent dozens of bloggers to the libraries and bookstores.

Eleanor said...

Great shadows and light. And a book about Paris I didn't know about? Thanks Randy!

Allison said...

You are a wonderfully quirky blogger, Randy! I would have felt exactly the same about that glass of water with a cozy new book. I could stare at it for hours! The light is fantastic.

I've been to Paris twice, and while it is the city of lights, if I had to choose, I think I'd go with Santa Fe... :D
