'Under the Bridges of Paris'

Took this photo on one of my recent walks in Paris
(there was even an outdoor art show using light and words 
against the walls under the bridges).

Turns out there is a song called 
'Under the Bridges of Paris'
recorded by both Eartha Kitt and Dean Martin
(which charted in Europe but never in the States.) 

Such sweet lyrics:

'How would you like to be
Down by the Seine with me
Oh what I'd give for a moment or two
Under the bridges of Paris with you.

Darling I'd hold you tight
Far from the eyes of night
Under the bridges of Paris with you
I'd make your dreams come true.'

This is such a fabulous photograph that it takes my breath away. I love it. Every rock, ripple and color!

Missing Paris, too. Gorgeous photo. Can't wait to see what the new camera turns out. :)

GORGEOUS photo, Kirsten. I've never heard that song, but I must Youtube it! The color of the water that you captured is divine.
