Evening photos: Paris on a rainy night

Paris Street scene. By Royce Blair.

Tonight will be a rare exception to nature photos. I rather liked the atmosphere and mood of these.

    My musical offering tonight is some Saturday night fever, Gloria Gaynor’s version of “Reach Out, I’ll Be There.”

    I have had the good fortune to visit Paris a few times. I spent two weeks wandering the streets and exploring it on my honeymoon. It is really a beautiful city. I fear it will turn into a total dump in a failed state before too long.

    Paris in the rain is like a dream. And France’s rural areas like the Loire Valley are as close to heaven as you can get on earth.
