Convergence of Two Cities; New York and Paris

I took this picture while on a summer exchange program in Paris. My friend came to New York City in the spring and I came to Paris in the summer. To me this picture is the perfect representation of my experience; two cities coming together just as two girls came together. This photo also showcases the convergence of new and old Paris; the new modern buildings can be seen to the right of the frame and yet the monuments give a sense of the history of Paris. This was also the first night I ever saw the Eiffel Tower at night, it was magical.
