Evident And Invisible At Once

The more often we see the things around us – even the beautiful and wonderful things – the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds – even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.

Paris At My Feet

It’s Paris. You don’t come here for the weather.
~Adrian Leeds

True that! Visiting Paris is always a delight.
I took this photo on the rooftop of the Galeries Lafayette on a rainy day. Most people come here for that typical snapshot of the opera, but I found those heavy clouds in the distance more intriguing, making the Eiffel Tower appear like a small antenna trying to protect the city at my feet from thunderbolts…
