Night shots of Paris

Our first glimpse of the Eiffel Tower at night.
We went for a walk down the seine river and across the place de La Concorde which was just a couple blocks from the hotel. Paris at night is a little bit magical. Definitely something worth experiencing at least once in your life.

The Eiffel Tower is deceptively small from this distance. It is hard to recognize how massive it really is from here. We were probably about 2-3 miles from it when we took this picture.

The Grand Palais

The Seine river and all of the barges alongside where people actually lived. The many bridges across were each so beautiful and yet each one was unique in design.

Loved the Eiffel all lit up at night. At certain intervals they do a bit of a light show from it and the lights on it are all twinkling and flashing. So fun!

The Arc de Triomphe as seen from the middle of the Champs de Elysees. I was just hoping that no one would hit us--tripod and all--while we snapped this shot. I kinda like how it turned out though.
