I recently spent the first three days of my honeymoon in Paris after getting married in Atlanta. Unfortunately, I didn’t bring my good tripod with me (since it kind of kills the romanticism to carry it instead of holding my wife’s hand) so some of the night shots did not end up how I’d like. However, I did get some shots I’m pretty happy about, and want to share with you all.
The picture below is the viewing areas around the Grand Staircase from Palais Garnier, or the Paris Opera House. While walking around the city, my wife thankfully talked me into visiting the Opera House. This is one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever been into. The place is huge and ornately decorated throughout. Commissioned by Napoleon III, the building is made of dozens of types of marble and hundreds of statues.
