Wallpaper Wanderer: Notre Dame de Paris from the River

Did the elephants from Malawi in the last Wallpaper Wanderer from Helen make you want to head to Africa? This time around, we’ve got someplace a little more well-known, by one of my readers Zewl Pink who is a fellow Singaporean who just started blogging over at A Tinge of Pink. He’s a fellow occasional traveller type with a full-time job, and quite a range of interests ranging from design to climbing on top of travelling. Here he tells us about how he got this awesome shot:

Does that arrow mean you can only go in that direction on the river?

Zewl Pink:

Paris, France

Part of my love for Europe is its rich renaissance history and the historical architectural influence. And no doubt, Notre-Dame de Paris is one of my favourites.

This shot of the Notre-Dame Cathedral was taken from a river cruise after a downpour as the sun started to came out to play. It was a risky move to jump onto a river cruise prior to a downpour, but to get a majestic shot of the Notre-Dame Cathedral makes it all worth it.


This photo is really pretty, and Zewl actually sent me another 2 pictures and they were all pretty fantastic, so I had to ask him to choose one because I wouldn’t have been able to decide which pic I wanted to feature! European skies just look extra amazing when the sun is out – it does make me want to go back to Paris, since I only had a day to wander around the last time I was there back in 2007…
