Champs-Elysees, Wednesday

My walk down the Champs today:

Looking back down the Champs-Elysees while courting death in the middle

Exhausted tourists sitting around the big pond of the Tuileries gardens, with the Arc de Troimphe in the background and the obelisk of the Place de la Concorde
Grieving statue with plum tree and pigeons
The little Arc with the Louvre and its pyramid behind.
