Not a Tourist

My best friend had just come all the way from South Carolina to visit me during my semester in Paris. I hadn't bothered to take a picture of the Parisian trademark (except one lousy selfie) in my two months here because I'd already been to Paris twice before and frankly the Tower was getting old. Something was different today, however. Seeing someone you love see something for the first time and be floored by it is an inspirational moment. It reminds you that just because something is no longer a shiny new toy to you anymore, you should never lose sight of its value. Some would give everything to have what you take for granted. This picture was my attempt to capture my friend's point of view - the enchantment of seeing a world wonder for the first time.
