The River Seine plays a large role in making Paris such an aesthetically pleasing place to visit. It’s even included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. As I walked through the city, I would often look (with a little bit of envy) at the people who were sitting along its banks reading or relaxing the afternoon away. Alas, I never joined them.
I had fun taking the following pictures, but I also made sure to put my camera away and simply enjoy the views. That’s one of the disciplines necessary when traveling: stop taking photos of everything, and stop mediating your experiences through a digital screen or a camera lens. Sharing photos is fun, but sometimes it just needs to be about you, right there in that moment. Keep that experience for yourself.
