Jardin des Tuileries

A cold, crisp day in Paris had Leah and I walking through le Jardin des Tuileries in the afternoon. The light possessed a surreal quality, casting the plants in blue tones, and muting all the normal colours. Despite the normal stream of Parisians and tourists, the gardens actually seemed quiet and the barren trees only served to reinforce this impression.

It quite felt like a moment out of an Edward Gorey book.
