Don't go in Seine


I've taken over a hundred pictures of the River Seine. The view overwhelms me every few steps and I have to take another shot. I might go insane from the beauty.

Paris was built around this river and I can imagine history unfolding before me. Napoleon stood here. King Louis XIV probably crossed that bridge over there to get to the Louvre. Marie Antoinette ate cake here. The Parisi tribe in the first century came to this island from Britain and settled, never thinking that 2,000 years later, someone would be standing in the same spot, watching the river flow by, and wanting to capture every minute of it with or without a camera.
