    Stunning photo, John! Love the angle, the B/W and how it reminds me of The Da Vinci Code!

  • thanks. yes the movie was filmed in paris. when I first went to Paris I made sure to finish the book first. when I got there, I was fasinated with it. did you read the book? if so, make sure to also read Angels & Demons. and of course, take a look at my latest shot. :)

    I know exactly where you stood to get this shot, because I also did it.
    Paris and France was such an experience for me, I think everyone should do it al least once in their lives.
    Well done John. and happy snapping.

  • thanks. take a look at my latest shot and all my other Paris pictures. I think everyone should go to Paris several time cause there is tons and tons to see. unless they stay for a year. you have some great shots yourself.
