Paris, Winter Light, & a Lamborghini Gallardo

Thinking of Paris these days, reposting this from my last visit nearly 3 years ago.

Went to Paris to do a reading at The American Library of Paris and to meet my editor at Editions Philippe Rey who will be bringing out a French edition of The O'Briens next year. First time visiting Paris so late in the year, but ever since reading Moveable Feast way back when, and the Master's evocation of Paris in cold weather, I have wanted to experience it....not exactly winter yet, but close. I was lucky to get the sunshine, not common this time of year. 
Apologies for the lack of old iron in these images. I happened on a Lamborghini photo shoot in late afternoon, but most of my day was spent in the 7ieme arrondissement, where old trucks are not.
