My Favorite Bridge in the Whole, Wide World: Pont de Bir Hakeim

Travel & Personal
February 9, 2016

I love MANY things about Paris; summer strolls along the seine, macarons in pastels, afternoons waltzing through passage ways, stormy days where rain washes the cobblestone streets and, of course, my favorite bridge post de Bir-Hakeim.

As I was taking the long way home and riding my bike down the seine after a shoot I came across this beauty on accident. I knew about it and had seen several photos, it was even in one of my favorite movies- Inception. It wasn’t until we came face to face that I full completely in love.

It’s such a wonder in an already wonderful city. Gracefully connecting the 16th and 15th Arrondissements with striking views of the Eiffel Tower.

The metro goes right above the bridge, Chicago style and the breezeway reminds me of Brooklyn all wrapped in everything I love about Parisian architecture.

It’s really the perfect bridge. See for yourself:

Photos from my first visit and then a sunrise shoot, because I believe in those.

Neither one of us eats fish so we had pizza for dinner. The metro was very confusing, we didn't travel with a tour group so we were on our own. Grateful for the strang ...
