I received a post from a blog I subscribe to entitled Someone Like You.

It is accompanied by the new release video of Adele’s song by that name.

Not only is the melody hauntingly beautiful, but the words are poetic and the entire video is of a slender Adele in Paris walking along the Seine with the city beyond – all in black and white.

This reminded me of the old days – you remember them – when we actually had to buy film for cameras and adjust the lighting.

Somehow, before I had ever laid eyes on the City of Light, I had a vision of her in black and white and purchased the film to take a few pictures. Climbing to the top of Notre Dame’s Bell Tower provided the perfect perch for my photography. And I wasn’t disappointed. Two of my shots are below. The one with the gargoyle and the Eiffel Tower is my favorite.

For me, Paris will always be grey and pink, smell like lavender, taste like Christmas – all that butter and wine – and sound like poetry.

I guess Adele thought so too!
