EXPATS AGAIN! Experiencing other cultures while enriching our global view.



My photo
Munich, Germany
I am married to the love of my life and am finally able to shower him with all of the attention he deserves. I am now retired and living the life here in Europe. I am an American, he is an Australian, and this is our second overseas address. The first was Shanghai, China and now Munich, Germany. Come along and live the life with us as we continue our adventure of discovering all Europe has to offer.

So, our grandson has been returned to Michigan safely and all that is left are these photos in my computer files.  The photos are his and they record his journey through Paris.  It seems that monuments, architecture, art and nature are not what intrigues an American 11 year-old.  But it's good to know he has an artistic eye.  The following images belong to Eli and I've taken the liberty of calling the collection, "Memories of Paris."

While I appreciate that he can look at the world and see beauty in what I see as a pox, I really tried to guide his attention elsewhere.  However, I'm fairly sure he returned home with a camera filled with graffiti and little else.  Ahhhh, boys.

Having said all that, here is one of his shoes that I regard as rather clever!  Nice job, Eli.  At least it is color coordinated (insert smile).

I do appreciate the artistry within graffiti, because it can really be talent sometimes. Nonetheless, it's still vandalism when you cut to the chase.

I wholeheartedly agree, blue. Then again the "Nasty" one is just plain, nasty.

I love these photos! They're so refreshing rather than the obligatory Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame photos. Your grandson has a great eye!

I like his photos. Refreshingly different. Don't get him spray paint for Christmas though... ;-)

Kristin, I agree, but like planet says, "Don't get him spray paint for Christmas though.." He would certainly disagree, lol.
