Saturday Snapshot -- Paris Sky

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post on Alyce's blog At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.
My daughter Grace who is staying in Paris for a few months took this picture of the sunset from the balcony of the apargment where she is staying.

Then a few days later, she took this shot from Sacre Coeur.

Unfortunately, while wandering alone in Montmartre, she was set upon by some men who were overzealous to sell her things or flirt with her and she had to elbow one to let go of her. But, that's her story to tell, if she decides to.
Enjoy the photos.

Paris does such beautiful skies. So many moods.

A beautiful city in great light. Too bad about those men, they seem to turn up all over the world...

Oh man! I wish I was still there. I also have a Paris shot today. It's all so beautiful.

Love the sunbeams in the second one. I appreciate getting to share her Paris time, but sorry about the unkind men.

I haven't been to Paris. Thanks for bringing Paris to me.

Oh, yes, great photos...and then there's the dark side of beautiful cities!

Hope that is your daughter's only experience like that!

Those men can be really aggressive. Pick pockets are too.

Lovely pictures. I definitely would like to experience that first hand.

Love the second one with the clouds - I think I know just where she snapped that shot.

We have also had some difficulties with the men in France - it can be very scary when you're alone.

Such a dramatic sky in the second one!

My Snapshot is here.

I think it's one of those odd truths that everything looks better in Paris (which makes me even more eager to go there someday).

Ooops. Sorry I'm running late. I'm on vacation in Florida and totally forgot about posting Dreaming of France today. Thank you...
