Photo of the Day

July 7, 2009

Luna Park, Paris

This Month in Photo of the Day: Images From the 2008 International Photo Contest

The photograph is the result of unbelievable coincidences during a trip around France in August. In Paris, my tiredness after a full day's walking was gone in a moment when the sun touched the horizon and spilled its light over the Jardin de Tuileries. A few shots were enough to capture the magic of the moment and the cheerfulness of Luna Park in my mind and heart forever.
