      Cindi, did you catch the update…I changed # 11 because I had a duplicate. Were you voting for the Christmas tree at Galeries Lafayette? That’s the correct # 11.

    Fun contest! It was hard, and we had to leave off a couple of favorites, but we choose: 1, 13, 20, 23, 42

    Great work for the entire visit by both of you and your visitors.

    These are all so great! I feel like you need categories because saying best light photo is kind of subjective. Best in a magical way? Best in most creative? Etc

      Hey, Jill, think you’ve got a typo. There is no 57. Did you mean 47?

    I found directions:
    “As you vote, consider the artistic quality, the creativity, the editing, the imagination behind the photo rather than just the prettiest photos of your favorite places.” This helps!!

    Impossibly hard Choice! I am going with 12, 28, 30,34,50. I decided to stick with photos with at least some element of “natural” light! Though I really did want to include 9, a perfect holiday card shot! 🎄 I could have easily selected 5 more with only artificial light! Good job you two!

    It’s been an absolute joy to scroll through these photos — multiple times, savouring each one — not only because they’re ALL so wonderful but also because you’ve shared the story behind them during this year’s trip. You’ve captured our beloved City of Light in all her magic and more. Heartfelt merci, L&B, and long may your visits continue xxxx
