Let me state for the record that I officially hate tourists. Yes, I was one of them, but I never stood in anybody's way when others wanted to take a photo, talk loudly in my own language so it causes so much air polution, and other things that drive me nuts. This is why I go camping, to get away from that lot. I really don't mind crowds, but seriously, I vote that tourists become their own colony. And bring back the fun in mediated cultural experience!
Just click on the thumbnails for the larger image:
I was royally pissed off at the number of tour groups that decided that nearly knocking me over was acceptable. I was trying to take a decent photo in the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles, and this was what I came up with. I wished that you could see the anger on my face. At least my camera looks good, if somewhat blurry. It's the mirror's fault. Damn restoration commitee.
This has to be one my my favourite photos. I had to get outside to get away from all the people. It was a pretty windy day so not that many people went outside to look at the gardens. Even then, I had to wait at least twenty minutes so there were no people in my shot.
One of the many greenery at Versailles. I love the design. Reminds me of a spider for some reason.
An overall view at one section of the gardens at Versailles. I'm debating whether or not I actually like the contrast, or whether my scanner is crap.
An image of the Military School from the Eiffel Tower. I might have to muck around with the image more, it was a pretty hazy day.
I like this image because it reminds me of how crowded Paris is. Yet another view from the Eiffel Tower, and tres hazy.
Your Holy Sweetness
I'm a girl who's keeping sane in an insane world. I've been told that I'm funny and people like to buy me Pez and Spongebob Squarepants products. I say bring it on.
