    Fabulous fabulous photos, Sara. LOVED the gilt on the Seine, the shots of the Mona watchers in the Seine, oh, all of it. But the little soldier and his green shadow (terrific commentary) won me over. The writing as much as the image. Bravo!!!

    so great to partake in your experience there. somehow I think marble fishnet stockings would be too constricting though...
