1. Wow, my dear Adsos Letter!

What a stunning POV! I love looking up and finding things/views that had been missed.

Here's one of my favorites from Paris: It's a ceiling in the Louvre, which I wouldn't have seen except that I was tired and wanted to sit down!



I love your photo!

2. Thanks Peggy.

Your photo is wonderful. Thanks for sharing it!

Paris is a place that we've not yet been to.

My youngest went to Paris on her honeymoon. She and her husband stayed in a flat at the top of a seven-story walk-up. Good thing they are young, and in good shape.

5. Breathtaking

it makes me feel like I'm standing. Phenomenal photograph. We once had a contest "looking up" this would be a winner for sure.

8. A little fun history...which I remember

Here's the winners thread for the contest Looking Up

https://www.democraticunderground.com/10024990614

I was going to take a walking tour of the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona BUT there was a taxi strike when I was there. And I had no idea how I'd get back to the hotel if I couldn't keep up with the walking tour!

I really would love to go back to Barcelona--not in the summer when it's so hot--and hopefully not during a taxi strike! It was a photographer's paradise.

Nice shot, Adsos Letter!

10. Thanks, mnhtnbb.

Lots of familiar names on that thread. In fact, I miss a lot of the old timers: WannaJumpMyScooter, DS1, BlueinAK, regnaD kciN, JeffR, and a whole bunch of others.

7. What a great perspective.

Sometimes people forget to look up and miss a whole bunch of great stuff.
